Roasting fruit may seem a little strange, but it brings out the flavors even more by concentrating the sugars in the fruit. This simple cherry sauce can be used to spoon over pancakes, cheesecake, crepes, waffles or stirred into tangy greek yogurt. The sauce would be divine in making a yogurt and granola parfait with layering greek yogurt, sauce and granola. Click here for my recipe for homemade granola.
Roasted Cherry Sauce
(Recipe: Jeni’s splendid ice creams at home)
(makes about 1 1/4 Cup)
2 Cups frozen organic sweet cherries
2/3 Cup sugar
2 tsp. cornstarch
Preheat oven to 400° F. In a 9 inch baking dish or shallow casserole dish combine the frozen (not thawed) cherries, sugar and cornstarch, tossing to mix. Roast for 30-40 minutes, or until the juices are thickened and bubbly, stirring every 15 minutes. Let cool completely, then chill in the refrigerator.
