- ¼ c CherryMan maraschino cherries chopped into small pieces
- ¼ c maraschino cherry syrup from jar
- 5 large apples (gala, golden delicious, or your pick), peeled, cored, and cut into ½" pieces
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
In a large saucepan, combine apple pieces and cherry syrup. Bring to boil and stir occasionally.
Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer until apples are very tender (about 15 minutes) and stir occasionally.

Remove apples from heat and transfer to a bowl. Add cherries, cinnamon, and vanilla.
