  • Serve warm. Remove orange peels and cinnamon sticks before serving.

Cook's Note:

You can use either 1 or 2 cans of sweet cherries in heavy syrup. Substitute canned prunes if sweet cherries are not available.

Cool, store in the refrigerator overnight, and reheat the second day for a richer flavor. Remove the orange peels and cinnamon sticks just before serving.
