Cherries and toasted almonds are a perfect flavour pairing: here, they're combined with vanilla frozen yoghurt and made into a ruby-red topping for the sundaes.
This came out great and my guests loved it! I wasn't sure how much cherries I should've had because 1 3/4C weighed just 400g; I ended up going by volume and wound up with plenty. I made my own frozen yogurt (using honey vanilla Greek yogurt), adding the chopped cherries and 2T toasted almonds during the last 5 minutes of my ice cream machine's cycle. The fruit sauce was delectable. Nice and tart yet the perfect sweetness. I went with the raspberry jam because that's what I had (I strained out the seeds), and thinned the sauce with a tablespoon or so of water. Stoning the cherries was a bit of work, but had a yummy outcome! - 26 May 2013
