I've used mulberries instead of blackberries in this old family recipe. Whichever you choose, it's a mouthwatering treat. —Wanda Allensworth, Webster City, Iowa

  • 2 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 cups frozen pitted tart cherries, thawed
