In a medium saucepan, cook carrots in water, covered, 8 to 10 minutes, or until tender. Drain well.
In a greased 1-1/2 quart baking dish, combine cooked carrots, cherries, maple syrup, butter, nutmeg and ginger. (It is not necessary to thaw cherries before combining with carrots.) Bake, uncovered, in a preheated 375 degree oven 35 minutes, or until hot and bubbly. Stir occasionally.
