Toast the almonds in a skillet on medium heat just flip and flip until they are slightly toasted and remove to a plate… don’t worry they will toast up a little more while they cool.
In a small sauce pan bring a cup of water to a boil, add the oatmeal and cherries, reduce to low and stir occasionally until the water is all absorbed. Once water is absorbed add the almond extract, 1 1/2 tsp honey and stir. Place in a pretty dish (my great grandmother’s here) drizzle the last 1/2 tsp of honey over the tops, then add the almonds and enjoy.
