3/4 cup currant jelly
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
1/4 cup brandy
Vanilla ice cream

Combine reserved syrup and the rum; pour over cherries. Refrigerate at least 4 hours. In chafing dish or saucepan, melt jelly over low heat. Stir in cherry mixture and orange peel. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture simmers.

    Probably more in the vein of other sequels like Return of the Killer Tomatoes.
