A classic cherry recipe—Cherries Jubilee was first made for one of Queen Victoria’s jubilees. The beauty of our version is how easy it is to make. Instead of cooking down cherries in a syrup, simply warm a jar of Chukar’s whole cherry pie filling in a pan, flambé it with rum or brandy, and pour over ice cream!
And don’t be afraid to flambé! It’s not as hard as it sounds and the depth of flavor it adds is wonderful.

- Carefully warm the rum in a separate pan over medium-low heat. Remove both pans from heat source. Pour rum over cherry sauce. Carefully light rum with a long lighter or match. Swirl gently until alcohol has burned off.
- Spoon cherries over ice cream and serve immediately.
