Hot Cherry Sauce

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 15 min.

Makes

about 3-1/2 cups

This sweet-tart cherry sauce with a hint of cloves is just delightful. I use it with ham, but it also works beautifully as a dessert sauce.

Ingredients

  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) pitted tart cherries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 to 2 drops red food coloring, optional

Directions

  1. Drain cherries, reserving juice; set cherries aside. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and cloves; whisk in reserved cherry juice. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in cherries and food coloring if desired.
