Add all ingredients together, but water and corn starch, mix well. Chill at least 1 hour to allow flavors to combine.

When juice runs clear from a cut made in between thigh and leg, remove duck from oven and mix water and corn starch t make a paste. Stir mixture into cherry sauce cooled 10 to 15 minutes. Pour sauce over duck. Carve and serve.
