Preheat oven to 375 deg-F.
Scrub beets but do not peel. Bake until tender, 1-1 1/2 hrs.
Meanwhile, sauté the onion in butter until soft, 10-15 mins.
Simmer the cherries in water until they are very soft, about 15 mins.
Force through a sieve or food mill, adding additional water, if necessary, to make 1/4 cup of thick sauce.
When the beets are ready, peel and slice them thinly. Place in a bowl and add the cooked onion & cherry sauce. Stir in the minced herbs & salt.
