Sour Cherry Compote
Yield: Makes about 1 1/2 cups | Total time: 10 min
- 1/2 cup water
- 5 tablespoons sugar
- Zest and Juice of 1 whole orange, preferably organic, scrubbed clean
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract (or beans scraped from 1/2 vanilla pod)
- 2 cups cherries, pitted
- Combine water, sugar, orange zest and juice together in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Scrape seeds from vanilla bean into pan and add bean (or vanilla extract); bring to a boil, stirring to help sugar dissolve. Let cook on high heat about 7 minutes until thick and syrupy. Add cherries and cook another 2 minutes, until fruit is coated and juicy but not broken down. Let cool; store, in glass jars or containers in refrigerator until ready to use.
