Sweet, Spicy and Fruity Kielbasa Appetizer

Do you know what season it is? It's here folks... Football Season:@) Yep, it's time to que up some great appys and the first offering this year will be these Sweet, Spicy and Fruity Kielbasa Bites, and this is a good one! I believe kielbasa is a little different and not something folks generally think of as an appetizer, so if you find a recipe you like, it might just become your signature party dish... The maraschino cherries really makes this different (and perfect for the holidays too). Another thing to love, it can be made on the stove top and kept warm in a slow cooker. Don't hesitate to try this folks, I think you'll be happy.
The only thing I'd do differently,
cut all of the cherries in half so there are more for each bite.
Recipe easily scaled down.
