- Melt the butter in a medium nonstick skillet set over medium heat. Add the cherries and cook, stirring frequently, until they begin to release their juice, 3 – 5 minutes. Stir in the brown sugar, lemon juice, and salt. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves and the juices thicken slightly, about 4 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat; cool slightly to serve warm, or transfer to a covered container; refrigerate up to 2 days. Gently reheat to serve. Yields 1/4 cup per serving.
