Make Wine Cherries Jubilee

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the fresh cherries, granulated sugar, cinnamon stick, and the scraped seeds from the split vanilla bean.

  2. Pour the red wine over the cherry mixture, ensuring that all the cherries are submerged.

  3. Place the saucepan over medium heat and bring the mixture to a gentle simmer. Let it cook for about 10 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.

  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and water until smooth. Slowly add this mixture to the simmering cherry sauce, stirring constantly.

  5. Continue to cook the sauce for an additional 5 minutes, or until it has thickened slightly. Remove the cinnamon stick and vanilla bean.

  6. To serve, scoop vanilla ice cream into individual bowls or glasses.

  7. Generously spoon the wine-infused cherries over the ice cream, making sure to distribute the sauce evenly.

  8. Garnish each serving with fresh mint leaves for a pop of freshness.

  9. Finally, grab a spoon and indulge in the exquisite combination of luscious wine-infused cherries and creamy vanilla ice cream!

The rich wine-infused sauce, drizzled over the cold and velvety ice cream, creates a delightful contrast of textures and flavors. Whether you're celebrating a special occasion or simply treating yourself, this indulgent dessert is sure to impress!
