Cherry Compote

Ingredients

  • 1 pound cherries, washed, pitted and halved
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon kirsch, or orange flavored-liqueur
  • 1 cup sweetened whipped cream

Directions

  • In a medium saucepan, combine the cherries, water, lime juice, and sugar. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
