Five-Star Peaches with Balsamic Cherries
Are you looking for a fast and fabulous summer dessert? Here's one that has earned five stars!
As I've stated in previous posts, I'm a HUGE Ellie Krieger fan. Her book, The Food You Crave, is my all-time favorite cookbook. This recipe gets a five-star rating from reviewers on the Food Network website. Like all the recipes Ellie Krieger publishes, it's delicious and incredibly healthy.

Ellie Krieger's Peaches with Balsamic Cherries
1/2 pound cherries, halved and pitted
2 tablespoons sugar, plus more to taste
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 pound peaches, sliced
In a small saucepan, stir together the cherries, sugar and balsamic vinegar, and place over a medium heat. Bring to a boil and continue to cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
In a medium bowl toss the warm cherries and syrup with the sliced peaches, add more sugar to taste and serve.
