Sweet Cherry Sauce Recipe Made From Freshly Picked Cherries
Dessert - Filling - Topping

Versatility is the theme of the cherry sauce recipe. The recipe comes in handy during the cherry-picking season. It is a great way to prepare cherries for freezing and later use.

As a delightfully sweet dessert, serve cherry sauce plain, with vanilla ice cream, vanilla sauce, or custard. Served, for breakfast, with honey pops and mild natural yogurt is one of my favorite combinations. Cherries prepared as a sauce to fill pies and pastries.
