A stunningly coloured, lightly sweet, smooth, silky, tart, fruity, floral sauce. Great for drizzling on cheesecake, mousse, cakes and meringue (any dessert that would benefit from a little tart balance) or blending into boozy cocktails.
Pears, cranberries and lemons. The resulting preserve is more like a compote than a true marmalade. Something between a marm and a rustic jam. It’s chunky, toothsome, tart, sweet and very slightly bitter.
Compote is a dessert originating from 17th century France made of fruit preserved in syrup. The fruit is gently cooked in water or spirits with sugar and spices. I used black cherries in this batch but any sweet or sour cherry will DO.
