We were sitting watching TV and John oh so casually turns to me and says
“You know…we have not had cherries jubilee since our last cruise” with a smile. I asked if that was a subtle hint that he would like me to make cherries jubilee for him. He nodded and said he would not complain if I just happen to make it this week.
So here we go…Crock Pot Cherries Jubilee
Crock Pot Cherries Jubilee
2 cans pitted dark sweet cherries in heavy syrup (15 to 19oz) -I used Walmart brand cherry pie filling and it worked great.
1/2 cup dried cherries
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 tsp almond extract
2 tbsp corn starch
3 tbsp cold water
1. Stir canned cherries with syrup, dried cherries, sugar, orange juice and almond extract in the crock pot
2. Cover and cool on low for 3 hours
3. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and cold water, stir into crock pot
4. Cover and cook on high for 30 minutes until thickened
5. Turn to warm and enjoy
I served the Crock Pot Cherries Jubilee over pound cake and vanilla ice cream.
