Lucky for me, my sis and bro-in-law have a mini-cherry orchard in their backyard. Even luckier still that they take the time to pick a bunch and pass them on to greedy people like me.
After pitting about 2 1/2 cups of cherries, (I had more but got sick of doing this), I tossed the cherries into a sauce pan with about 2 tablespoons of sugar. Cook until the cherries are soft, about 5 minutes.
Throw into a small greased baking pan and add a crumble to the top. I make mine up but here are some you can use. My favorite being the oat crumble topping.
Bake at 400 for about 20 minutes, or until it’s golden brown on top.
