Bing Cherry Sauce

Even though the cheesecake was a total disaster the Bing Cherry Sauce that I made to accompany it was fantastic! We enjoyed it over ice cream later in the week.

The recipe is very simple and could be made with a variety of fruits. I have used raspberries in the past but blueberries or strawberries would be delicious as well.

1/2 lb. fruit cut into bite sized pieces

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup water

12 oz. jar of fruit jam (preferably the same flavor as the fruit you have chosen)

Heat first 3 ingredients in a sauce pan over medium heat until the sugar is fully dissolved. Then add jam and heat until the mixture is reduced by half.

Cool to room temperate and chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.
