Everything in the pot except the honey. Brought to a simmer and let go for 15 minutes.

10 to 15 minutes to set the Sauce, then a second dunk in the sauce. Another 10 min or so to set that layer of sauce and time to pull them.

Funny, but I was checking out the kitchen implement section at the store the other day (bad habit) and saw Cherry and Olive pitters and thought to myself
"who needs those?". Now I know LOL!
Cool idea and a great post!
