Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup dark or amber rum
  • 1/2 cup quartered dried sour cherry
  • 1 cup walnut halves
  • 3/4 cups medium maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 teaspoons cider vinegar

Method

In large glass measuring cup, microwave rum at high for 30 seconds or until hot. Add cherries; let stand until plump, about 1 hour.

Meanwhile, quarter each walnut. Toast on rimmed baking sheet in 350°F (180°C) oven until golden and fragrant, about 6 minutes. Let cool.

In saucepan, bring maple syrup, corn syrup and water to boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat and boil gently until syrupy, about 7 minutes. Add cherry mixture; simmer for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Add walnuts and vinegar; let cool.

Spoon into decorative jars. Seal and refrigerate for up to 1 month. Warm to spreading consistency if necessary before serving.
