Ingredients
  Sugar 100 Gram
  Powdered cinnamon 1 Pinch
  Orange peel strip 1 (Thin)
  Redcurrant jelly 1 Tablespoon
  Robust red wine 150 Milliliter (1 1/2 Deciliter)
  Ripe cherries 450 Gram (Large Sized Ones, Preferably Morello)
Directions

In Italy the wine traditionally used for this recipe is Barolo, a wine as big and full bodied as its name.
A robust Burgundy could be used instead.
Put the sugar, cinnamon, orange peel, jelly and wine in a saucepan and heat gently until sugar has dissolved, then boil for 1 minute.
Add the cherries (stoned if you have time), and simmer for 10 minutes or until cooked.
Transfer cherries to a serving dish, reduce the syrup by rapid boiling for several minutes, then strain over the cherries.
Served chilled.
