Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Substitute
Can't find canned tart cherries? You can use 1 cup thawed frozen sweet cherries instead. Just cook them with 1/4 cup water and the tapioca as directed, omitting the 1 Tbsp. sugar.
Tip 2
Special Extra
Stir 1 Tbsp. Kirsch (cherry brandy) into cherry sauce before refrigerating.
