Roasted Cherries

When sweet cherries are plentiful at the farmer’s market, this recipe can be used to enjoy them all week long. Spoon the roasted cherries and their juices over yogurt or ice cream, serve alongside a cheese board, or even top grilled chicken or pork. I guarantee you’ll want to make another batch!
