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!


Step 1. 

Place cherries and bourbon in a small dish. and set aside.

Step 2. 

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...

Step 3. 

Add cherries and bourbon and carefully light to burn off the alcohol. Once the flame is out, cook for an additional 3-5 minutes or until apples are fork tender.

Step 4. 

Remove from heat and squeeze lemon juice over mixture. Spoon over vanilla ice cream (optional).
