1/10 recipe

Ingredients

  • 6 oz. dried unsulfured cherries (1 cup)
  • 2 Tbs. maple syrup
  • 1 3/4 cups unfiltered apple juice
  • 1 Tbs. kudzu
  • 2 tsp. grated lemon peel

Preparation

  1. In small bowl, combine cherries and warm water to cover. Let soak 30 minutes.
  2. Drain cherries and transfer to blender along with maple syrup and 1 1/2 cups apple juice. Blend until smooth. Pour mixture into small saucepan. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring often, for 5 minutes.
  3. In cup, dissolve kudzu in remaining 1/4 cup apple juice. Whisk into cherry mixture along with lemon peel. Cook, whisking often, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes (mixture will thicken further as it cools). Cool completely before using.
