Just place all of the ingredients – fresh pitted cherries, butter, sugar, water and a little corn starch – into a saucepan and heat until the cherries are tender and the sauce has thickened.

That’s it – and you’re ready to serve this amazing fresh, not-too-sweet cherry sauce over ice cream, as a topping on cakes or breads, or a classic cheesecake, and it’s even delicious served as a side to pork or chicken! (It’s so good – I’d be happy just eating it with a spoon!)

    • Hi Sherry – Thanks for taking the time to write to us and we greatly appreciate that you consider us among the good food sites! We do occasional sponsored posts to help offset the costs of running a website that receives more than 700,000 page views a month (our web hosting costs are fairly high to support that level of traffic) as well as to offset the food costs of developing 5-6 recipe posts per week. We love sharing our recipes (for free) with our readers but we do need to offset our costs in some way. We only work with brands that we actually use, or in this case, Walmart is one of the stores where we actually shop. I always state up front when our recipe post is sponsored by a brand – at that point, I would encourage you to scroll right down to the recipe if it’s one you are interested in seeing. Thanks for your candid feedback and I hope you’ll continue to enjoy our recipes! Martha

  12. Yes I definitely will be using this. Don’t know if you know the benefits of black cherries but my husband has gout. When he has a flare up, he eats black cherries. Helps relieve pain and swelling almost immediately. Thanks for the recipe for the sauce.

  13. Would this work with brown sugar? I LOVE fresh cherries and can’t wait to try this either way. I need to remember to buy a cherry pitter so I can actually make things with my cherries. I usually eat them out of the package until I make myself sick. They’re too good.

    • Hi Samantha – I’m not sure if brown sugar will work – it might change the flavor too much! If you decide to try it with brown sugar instead – please let us know how it comes out!)

  14. Jill Roberts :

    Absolutely love your recipes. Definitely i’ll try these New England apple cider cake and quick skillet chicken with grapes! Thx for sharing!
