  1. Place the sugar and water in a medium saucepan over a low heat and, stirring, cook for 3-4 minutes or until the sugar dissolves; increase the heat to high and bring to the boil; add the cherries, mint and ouzo; reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5-6 minutes or until the syrup thickens slightly; remove the mint sprig and discard.
  2. Warm the waffles in a toaster, divide the waffles among serving plates, top with ice cream and spoon over the cherries and syrup and serve immediately.

WOW, this was excellent! The Ouzo compliments the cherries nicely. I did not drain cherries but cooked longer to reduce the extra juice. We did not use the ice cream as I made these for breakfast this morning. I will be making this again. Thank you for posting the recipe. Made for *Zaar Tag 2008* game

Made these while I still had what I think is a suitable substitute for the ouzo ~ 1 1/2 tablespoons of an anise flavored syrup (for sodas), that I'd used in another recipe recently! These were quick to make & the topping was very nice, BUT another time I'd like to try this with homemade waffles! Still, a keeper of a recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Newest Zaar Tag Game]
