- Easy Dessert

Sweet Cherries – I used canned pitted sweet cherries that were in a heavy sauce. I found this to work the best in the process of slow cooker cherries jubilee.
Dried Cherries – In the baked goods aisle you can look by the raisins to find the dried cherries.
Granulated Sugar – The granulated sugar is going to sweeten the jubilee even more.
Orange Juice – I used orange juice for this recipe. The citrus in the orange juice really helps give you that classic jubilee flavor.
Almond Extract – Some recipes use vanilla but I prefer the flavor of almond extract.
Cornstarch and Water – The cornstarch and water act as a slurry and will help to thicken the sauce of the cherries.

Variations and Tips For Recipe
- You can use fresh cherries or even frozen cherries if you would prefer to skip the canned cherries.
- Top with some orange zest to elevate the flavor even more.
- This recipe doesn’t have to be made with alcohol. If you want alcohol you can add in some brandy or rum. The cherry brandy flavors work so well together. Just add in the brandy once you are done cooking.
- If your syrup is a thin syrup you can always repeat the cornstarch and water slurry to thicken it even more.
- Instead of orange juice you can use apple juice instead.
- Serve the warm cherries how you would like for a tasty dessert of your choice. The cherry mixture is very versatile so enjoy any way you want.
Cherry Jubilee is best served warm. But if you have any leftovers you can store in the fridge for 4-5 days. Then eat the leftovers chilled or warm them up.
