A Delicious and Nutritious Way to Eat Cherries......Cherry Homefries!

5 medium waxy potatoes cut into 1-inch cubes
1 onion, sliced
2/3 (160 mL) or 1 cup (250 mL) dried tart cherries
3 tbsp (45 mL) olive oil (plus 1-2 extra if needed)
1-2 tsp (5 -10 mL) crushed red chilies (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste 

Sauté the onions and cherries over low-medium heat for 15 minutes or until the onions become a deep brown (but not burnt).

At the same time as the onions are cooking, boil the potatoes in salted water until fork tender.

Add the potatoes to the skillet with the onions (with the extra oil if needed) and sauté for 5 minutes on high to crisp up the potatoes.

Season with salt, pepper, and chilies, to taste.

  1. I have not tried recipe, but it sounds delicious! Preparation and cooking times are decimated. Preparation time includes the time standing.
