    Prepare the charcoal barbecue for cooking using direct high heat (250°C-290°C). See below for information on how to set up a Weber Kettle.
  • Once the barbecue has preheated, brush the cooking grills clean with a wire brush. Place a barbecue-safe frying pan onto one side of the barbecue to preheat while you grill the cherries. Pour the cherries directly onto the cooking grill. Grill the cherries over direct high heat, with the lid closed, for 4 minutes, or until lightly caramelised, turning once.
  • Once the cherries are lightly caramelised. Remove them from the barbecue. If required, remove the pits. It is best to do this while wearing disposable gloves. Simply squash between your fingers and remove the pit.
  • Add the pitted cherries to the frying pan. Add the brown sugar, balsamic vinegar and a pinch of salt.
  • Simmer over direct high heat, for 5 minutes, or until the juices have started to thicken. Remove from the barbecue and serve warm with barbecued meats, or cool completely to accompany a cheese platter.
