Recipe Notes

I used a combination of dark sweet cherries and blackberry preserves in my version of this recipe; feel free to play with any fruit combination you like ... the possibilities really are endless. Additionally, you can mash the frozen fruit into the preserves or even process with a stick blender if you prefer a smoother syrup. Finally, I had to read a number of fruit preserve labels to find one with ingredients that pass the kitchen test, but it is possible!
