Before you start

It is not necessary to remove the pits.

Method

  1. Briefly wash the cherries, without letting them soak. Combine them with the sugar in a saucepan, then toss to coat. Add a little water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, with occasional stirring, until the liquid thickens slightly, about 10 min.
  2. Serve at room temperature. Garnish with vanilla ice cream, if desired.
