Rainier Cherry Day

Even though this Bourbon Cherries recipe does not use Rainier cherries specifically, they are still a tasty topper to ice cream or just by themselves.

12 oz. Bag frozen pitted tart red or dark sweet cherries
3 Tbsp. Sugar
3 Tbsp. Bourbon
½ tsp. Ground ginger
Pinch kosher salt
1 Tsp. Vanilla

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a small roasting dish stir together cherries, sugar, bourbon, ginger and salt.

Roast about 25 minutes or until cherries have released a lot of liquid and mixture smells very fragrant, stirring occasionally. Stir in vanilla. Let cool. Transfer to a clean jar and refrigerate up to 2 weeks. Serve at room temperature or warm gently in a saucepan over low heat.
