Dessert.Master's picture
  Fresh cherries 1 Quart, washed and pitted
  Honey 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (Or To Taste, Depending On The Sweetness Of Cherries)
  Water 2 Tablespoon
  Cornstarch/Arrowroot flour 1 Teaspoon
  Cold water 1 Tablespoon

Although in our country, canned Bing cherries are usually used to make CHERRIES JUBILEE, we prefer to use fresh or home-canned cherries of any variety, as they do in European countries where cherries are more abundant and popular than they are here.
Place cherries, honey, and water in a saucepan, and simmer over low heat for about 8 minutes.
Drain and return syrup to saucepan.
Combine cornstarch with water, add to syrup, and cook over low heat until smooth and transparent.
Add cherries and stir until cherries are heated through.
Pour warmed Kirsch over cherries and ignite.
