Over the weekend we celebrated my daughter turning 3 years old. As a vegan, desserts is always tricky. So I decided to make everything from scratch to ensure it was vegan friendly. I wanted to bake a chocolate cake but I wanted to including a filling. I had so extra cherries that needed to be used up soon. So I began searching the web, I found this delightful website that had just what I was looking for.
*Fresh Cherries, Sweet or Frozen Cherries (2cups or 7oz)
*Sugar (your preference) (1/4 cup)
*Lemon Juice (1tbsp)
*Water (1/4 cup)
*Prepare your fresh cherries by washing and deseeding.
*Place all ingredients in the saucepan.
*Cook on low to medium heat until the sugar began to dissolve.
*Continue cooking on low until the mixture thickens.
*Once it has reached the desired consistency then pour into a mason jar.
*Let it cool completely.
When the mixture is ready, it will have a glossy appearance. If it can coat the back of a wooden spoon then it is ready.
