Step 4: Cook the cherry sauce and adjust the consistency

Continue cooking the sauce over medium heat. Allow it to simmer for roughly 5 more minutes or until it has thickened to your liking.

Step 5: Cool and store your cherry topping

You can pour the topping into another heat-proof bowl and allow it to cool completely at room temperature.

This technique helps keep most of the cherry’s natural flavor without altering it as much as the thick syrup does.
