This cherry compote is great over some yogurt for a quick and easy sweet treat, or as a filling for pie, though you may want to double the recipe if you’re baking. Feel free to adjust the sugar according to the sweetness of your cherries. Unless you are buying cherries at the height of their season, we recommend using frozen.
1. In a bowl, stir the cornstarch, lemon zest, and nutmeg, if using. Set aside.
2. In a small saucepan, cook the cherries with sugar and ⅓ cup of water. Bring to a boil and stir over high heat until all the sugar is dissolved and some of the liquid has evaporated.
3. Stir in the cornstarch mixture. Cook until the mixture boils and starts to thicken, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and cool. Store in the refrigerator. Eat with yogurt.
