DIRECTIONS

Pour the juice from a pint jar of pitted Bing cherries into the top pan of a chafing dish or double boiler. Bring the juice to a boil. Thicken it with teaspoon of corn starch dissolved in a tablespoon of cold water. Then add the cherries. Stir them in the sauce until they are heated through. Pour over the cherries 2 ounces of kirsch and blaze. Serve the flaming cherries over 1 pint vanilla ice cream.
