My first attempt at cherries jubilee. I used 2 cans of canned cherries and doubled the recipe on everything else. Instead of water, I used juice from the canned cherries. I also didn't have cherry extract so used almond as suggested by others. I will definitely get some cherry extract for next time as I thought the almond flavoring was too much. Also, I will omit the orange zest next time as I thought the orange flavor was too strong. These flavors overpowered the cherry flavor too much. I will certainly try it again with these few changes. P.S. Canned cherries do not need to simmer for the full 10 minutes as they are already semi-cooked in the can. If you simmer too long, the sauce gets too thick and you have to thin it down with more liquid. I think 5 minutes would have been plenty long.
