Fresh Cherry Jubilee is a great way to celebrate the Fourth of July.
This easy, but elegant dessert creates fireworks of its own when warmed brandy is poured over the sweet cherry, orange juice and cornstarch base and then ignited.
When the flames die down, the sauce is ladled over scoops of rich vanilla ice cream.
All the sweet cherry varieties work well in Fresh Cherry Jubilee, although dark cherries offer a more dramatic color contrast with the ice cream.
Enjoy the Jubilee while you can, because fresh cherry season is brief.
They arrive in markets beginning in June and are gone by mid-August.
Combine sugar and cornstarch.
Blend in water and orange juice.
Cook and stir until thickened and smooth.
Add cherries and orange peel; return to boil and simmer 10 minutes.
Gently heat brandy, pour over sauce and flame, if desired.
Serve over ice cream.
Recipe may be halved.
