I wanted to make something savoury with fresh cherries because there's only so much cherry pie and ice cream one man can eat!
I loved this! It's wonderful with crackers and goat or havarti cheese, as well as over pork. I have worked in catering and at fancy events we would prepare a cheese tray with many different cheeses and ramekins of honey (sprinkled with a few white sesame seeds) and chutney along with nice crackers. We provided little demitasse spoons and cheese knives so everyone could pick their favorite cracker and cheese and then drizzle some honey and chutney on top. The sweet/savory flavor is so sophisticated! This combination was always available at the most elegant events. Just be sure to not cook too long or you will end up with cherry jam! - 10 Sep 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Worked like a charm! We really enjoyed it! Thanks! - 24 Jun 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe had tons of great flavor from the fruit and the spices, but we felt it was a bit heavy on the vinegar. When we make it again, we will add 1/4 to 1/2 cup more brown sugar. We also added about an 1/8 teaspoon cardamom. Yum! - 04 Nov 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
