Sharon's Hint

When cooking with alcohol, make sure you have a tight fitting lid handy to cover the pan when you add flame, just in case it gets out of hand!


Place cherries and bourbon in a small dish. and set aside. In a heavy bottom pan, on medium heat, add apples, brown sugar and ghee along with spices, cooking for appx 5 minutes until the sugar has melted and apples become soft.. Add cherries and bourbon and carefully light to burn off alcohol. Once flame is out, cook for an additional 3-5 minutes or until apples are fork tender. Remove from heat and squeeze lemon juice over mixture. Spoon over vanilla ice cream (optional).
