Sour cherry Cooked In wine

This is an excerpt from The Prince of Transylvania's Court Cookbook
(Hungary, 16th c.)

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.
