Dark Sweet Cherry Sauce

Dark Sweet Cherry Sauce:

  • 16 ounce package of frozen dark, sweet cherries
  • 1 teaspoon arrowroot powder (to thicken)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt


  • Small saucepan
  • Stovetop
  • Big spoon


Place the ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat.

Set a timer for 20 minutes. As the mixture bubbles and simmers, use a big spoon to mash the fruit together. Depending on your desired consistency of the end result, you may do this only once or several times.

The sauce can be enjoyed warm, especially if paired with meat dishes, or as a cold topping to sweet treats. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for later use.
