Roasted Red Cherries


It's a month for simple recipes, I think. These roasted cherries are my new favorite thing. Mix them into some vanilla or better yet goat cheese ice cream or do what I do - mix them with plain greek yogurt! The greek yogurt mixed with the sweet cherries makes for a healthy treat that you won't be able to resist.

What You'll Need
Lots of Cherries, pitted (okay, about 2 cups!)
2/3 Stevia Sweetener (or like product)
2 teaspoon cornstarch
13" x 9" baking pan


Preheat your over to 400 Degrees Fahrenheit and rinse the cherries


Pit the cherries. It's going to take a lot of patience - it's worth it though.

 

Mix the cherries, stevia sweetener, and cornstarch, tossing them with your hands in the pan to mix.


Roast for 40-45 minutes in the oven, until the juice is thickened and bubbly. Let cool in the fridge


Stir in as needed - and voila! A yummy, healthy treat for you!
