Don’t throw away any of the cherry syrup!! After using what you need to glaze the meatballs, extra syrup can be saved to drizzle over desserts or mixed into cocktails. Yield: ¾ cup
1. Drain the cherries over a bowl and reserve the syrup. Syrup will get used later with the meatballs.
2. Add the cherries to a small saucepan. Add the butter, salt and saffron water and gently mix over low heat for 2 minutes until just starting to bubble. Reserve.
