Cherries Jubilee Sauce

Prep time 10 mins
Cook time 8 mins
Yield Makes 3 cups
The cherries for this recipe come in a bag and do not have syrup, liquid, or sweetening. Anytime you add alcohol to a pan of ingredients, remove the pan from the heat first. 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 (12-oz.) packages frozen dark sweet cherries (do not thaw)
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange zest (optional)
  • 1/4 cup brandy
  • Garnish: orange zest

How to Make It

  1. Whisk together sugar and cornstarch in a medium skillet; whisk in orange juice. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in cherries, and, if desired, orange zest. Bring to a boil over medium heat; reduce heat, and simmer, stirring often, 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

  2. Stir in brandy, and return to heat. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds. Cool slightly. Garnish, if desired.
