  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 - 2 lbs. fresh, sweet cherries, pitted
  • 1/2 cup real maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup rum
  • 1 teaspoon real vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • To finish: 2 Tablespoons rum


In a medium saucepan, put the cherries, maple syrup, 1/4 cup rum, and vanilla. Bring to a boil over medium heat and then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes or until the cherries are very soft.

Get some of the juices (2 - 4 Tablespoons-ful) from the pot in a cup. Stir the cornstarch into this liquid until smooth. Add the cornstarch mixture, a spoonful at a time, to the cooking cherries, stirring constantly, until the mixture is thickened.

Remove from heat and stir in the additional rum. Store in an airtight jar or container in the fridge. Warm and serve over cakes, ice creams, etc.
