STEP TWO

DRAIN cherries, reserving 2/3 cup of the cherry juice.

COMBINE reserved cherry juice, sugar, cornstarch and salt in medium saucepan. Whisk until cornstarch is dissolved.

COOK over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until mixture comes to a boil. Cook 1 minute longer, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in butter and almond extract, until butter is melted. Stir in cherries. Set aside.

STEP FIVE
