Cherry Compote Recipe
Last minute decision to share how I make my cherry compote , something I make every summer as soon as I get hold of good meaty cherries. Luckily, this year they went to sale so very often and I couldn’t miss the chance to make the most flavorful fruit drink ever.
I normally make my cherry compote by eyeballing and it always turns out amazing.
All you need is three simple ingredients: water, sugar, cherries and most importantly time and patience. This isn’t anything difficult to make , but will require a little time.
You’ll also need sterilized jars, preferably large ones. Watch the tutorial for more details on recycling your jars .
I’ll go ahead and put down quick instructions on how you can make cherry compote and hope many will try.
Share your feedback on my social media pages: Instagram or Facebook, I always look forward to it.

Thank you all!
Fresh meaty cherries , washed , stems removed
Boiling water, that way the syrup will start cooking faster
You’ll also need sterilized jars
In a pot combine boiling water and sugar
Bring to a boil
Water-sugar proportions to your taste (I’d say 1 cup water + 1 ½ tbs sugar, better slightly sweet)
Carefully place the cherries in boiling syrup and cook 3-4 minutes
Then place the cherries in jars, halfway the jar
Pour boiling syrup and screw
Put the jar upside down and cover with towel or blanket, to let it cool down slowly, may take 8-10 hours
Store in cool place or in fridge
Enjoy in wintertime or whenever you crave something summery and delicious!
