Flavored with orange and grape juices, Balsamic vinegar, and spice! 

Makes 5-2/3 cups

2 lbs. fresh Bing cherries, ripe, dark and pitted

2 c. orange juice, not from concentrate

1 c. grape juice (darK), 100% grape (Welch’s is gluten-free)

3 T. cornstarch

2 T. Balsamic vinegar

3/4 c. sugar

1 t. cinnamon

1/4 t. salt

In large saucepan combine cherries and orange juice.

Take 1/2 cup of the grape juice and combine in cup with the cornstarch. Stir till dissolved and add to saucepan.

Add remaining grape juice and remaining ingredients. Stir well.

Cook over medium heat, stirring continuously, till thickened.

Continue cooking, at a soft boil, for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Place in covered containers and keep refrigerated.

Notes:  The Balsamic vinegar gives this sauce a full-bodied tart flavor.

I always hand-pick my cherries, and always select the darkest ones. They’re the ripest and the sweetest.

Serve over various toasted breads.

Optional Topping: Mix plain soy sour cream with sugar to taste and a light dash of salt till smooth and creamy.

Lightly toast an English muffin. Spread with soft margarine. Top with Bing Cherry Sauce, then top with 1-2 T. soy sour cream topping. Top with a little fresh diced mint. Delicious!

LIKE a mother knows her children no matter the alterations in appearance, I know my gift when I see it on someone else, even when portions are replaced with a poacher’s words. IF you receive the goods, you are as much a poacher of talent, words and images as the poacher who stole them – no matter the purpose. I am not free and you are making me less free by stealing my intellectual material and putting other peoples names to it. CHANGING A FEW WORDS PROVES YOU KNOW YOU'RE LIABLE. STEALING another person's intellectual material isn't flattery; it's stealing. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight
