Very Cherry Compote over Greek Frozen Yogurt
What to do with a bag of fresh cherries? Make a compote! A compote is a french term to mean fruit cooked in sugar. Compotes are made in a similar process to jams or jellies, except compotes do not contain pectin. Compotes are typically served over ice cream or crepes. To prepare compote, chop fresh cherries (without the pit) and reduce in a small sauce pan with sugar, lemon juice, a splash or cranberry or pomegranate juice and a pinch of salt to liven up the cherry flavor. Heat up compote before drizzling over your favorite ice cream! You're going to LOVE this sweet treat.
