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.

yummy treat...simple and might be nice with a bit of quinoa granola sprinkled over top which I will try next time. My 4 "at a time " cherry pitter made the job less arduous - but you don't have to pit them
