Fresh Cherry Sauce.  Perfect for ice cream and yogurt topping!

I love walking into my local grocery stores and seeing all the California grown cherries filling up the seasonal bins.  I always have the overwhelming urge to take a sample or two, but I always know that the result will be the same:  Fresh, juicy and wonderfully sweet.

If you can get from the store back to your home without eating them all, I’ve got the perfect recipe that will keep you enjoying cherries for longer than you’d think.  Great used as a topping for ice cream or a mix in for yogurt, this sauce is also fabulous served on warm buttered toast in the morning.

I do have to say that my favorite is serving the slightly warmed cherries over a bowl of refreshing vanilla ice cream.  The silky sauce slightly melting the ice cream is the perfect ending to a long summer night.
