Dried cherry butter

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Dried pitted cherries (6 oz
2 Red Delicous apples; cored
Peeled and chopped
4 cups Brewed orange pekoe tea
⅓ cup Packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon Almond liqueur -- such as
Amaretto di Saronno

Combine cherries, apples and tea in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer gently, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes or until the cherries are plump and the apples are very soft. With a slotted spoon, transfer the fruit to a food processor or blender and process until smooth. (Do not discard cooking liquid in saucepan.) Return the puree to the saucepan and stir in brown sugar and almond liqueur. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring often, for about 1 hour and 20 minutes, or until thick and pasty. Let cool. (The butter can be stored, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 6 months.) Makes about 2-½ cups. Eating Well Magazine/1992, Recipe By : AnnieMiner
