National Cherries Jubilee Day

If you’ve read this blog before you know I am partial to the taste of cherries.  Today’s Nation Cherries Jubilee Day brings attention to a cherry classic.  Heat fresh cherries in a sauce with Kirschwasser (a cherry liqueur) and pore over vanilla ice cream.  Simple perfection.  If you’ve read this blog I tend to have bad results when I light things afire at home.  So I will resist the flambé directions that go with this dish.  But it is beautiful when lit aflame when the lights are low.  Just keep a fire extinguisher handy.  Enjoy!
