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.
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.
