This intensely sweet-tart condiment is as versatile as it is vivacious. Sour cherries pack a punch, and keep their color when roasted with rhubarb and a splash of orange juice. Use it as a topper on a bowl of morning yogurt, as a sweet-tart mixer to your evening cocktail, and everything in between.
