"Loved the taste of the baked beans. Great for a summer side dish when cherries are in season. Easy to make."

"yes, this recipe was fast and easy but i found the taste only average. i thought the cherries would bring a different taste, but i could not say the addition added to the flavor"

"This recipe is too oniony for me. Tried to tone it down by adding some molasses and brown sugar. Hubby said was just "ok". Will stick with my own recipe."

"This is a great recipe. We actually had it as a main dish, not a side. I used 1 1/2c of dried cherries as I wasn't sure if 2c would be too much. I also used an 28oz. can of vegetarian baked beans. Definitely a keeper."

"I took it to a cookout with friends and they loved it but I could not find the frozen tart cherries anywhere. Where do I buy them? I used a can of tart cherries instead but one can was only 1-1/2 c. instead of the 2 c. the recipe called for. Can anyone help?"
