Great way to use cherries - we used as a sauce over ice cream. Delicious! I didn't find that it had to boil all that long. Used brandy. A simple way to dress up ice cream and have a dessert for company.
Kirsch is a fruit brandy made with sweet cherries, but the brandy in your liquor cabinet will work just fine. This sauce is also delicious over an ice-cream sundae. Try it on pancakes and waffles too.
