This entry is a re-creation of a recipe from The Prince of Transylvania's Court Cookbook (Hungary, 16th c.), entitled "Sour Cherry Cooked in Wine". [insert a brief description of dish here, possibly including any or all of the following: characteristics of the final dish, when or how it might have been served, and why you selected it]

The Source Recipe
The original text of the recipe is as follows:

Sour cherry cooked in wine. Remove the sour cherry's stalk, wash it, put it into a pot, pour some wine and add some honey, cook it. Add some crushed cinnamon if you have it, but if you don't have any you can do so without. Slice a bread into cubes, fry it in butter. Put the bread cubes into the sour cherry's pot, and serve it when hot. If you're cooking for a fasting man, toast the bread and put it onto the plate, then the sour cherry; add sugar once served.
