We found some wild cherries in the bushes near our estate, and thought we should try to use them for something other than just shoving in our faces. As it happened we had also purchased a large quantity of very ripe bananas, originally with the intent of freezing them.
First I spent some time removing the stones from the cherries. They might be small, but it’s actually not that difficult, and it’s a nice mindful process. While I was doing this the bananas (3.5 to be exact) were bubbling away in a pan with 150 g of sugar. Then I added in the cherries:
When it had simmered for quite a bit longer I took it off the heat and added about 200g of dark chocolate. Then I put it all in the blender:

Finally I added 50 g. of butter and blended it again.
This made just a little more than we could fit in a large jar. After some time in the fridge it settled really well, and is now a firm creamy texture with lots of tasty banana and chocolate flavour. If I were to do it again, I’d probably use a bit more cherries, so their flavour would be more pronounced. But then again, we might experiment with a different fruit next time. Possibly blackberries, as it seems to be a good year for them. Here’s a picture of the full jar:
