2.  Reduce heat to medium-low and allow to simmer until cherries have
softened and liquid has reduced and thickened, about 30 to 40 minutes.
During the last minute of cooking, stir in the almond extract.

3.  Remove from heat and let cool completely.

4.  Stir mixture into pre-made yogurt, or into yogurt during the cooling phase of the yogurt-making process after it has been cooling for at least 6 hours.
