1.  Combine cherries and port; let stand 1 hour. Drain, reserving wine.

2. Bring 2 cups broth, the rices, pepper, onion and celery to a boil in a medium saucepan.   Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes,  until the rice is tender.  Stir in breadcrumbs and cherries.  The mixture will be dry.

3. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat.   Add the reserved port and 1 1/2 Cups broth.  Whisk in the flour, stirring constantly.  Add the rosemary, garlic and salt.  Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes or until the sauce is thickened.
