"This simple compote is a great accompaniment to roasted lamb or beef. We live in Flathead cherry country so that's what I use, but any sweet dark cherry will work. If using frozen cherries, it usually isn't necessary to add the water."

fresh cherries, pitted and halved

flathead cherries are a local favorite. I am often torn as to just eating them fresh since we can only savor them maybe 2 months out of the year or buying enough at peak to freeze or preserve. This is a great recipe for fresh, but I just tried it with some cherries I had fresh frozen. Summer in the middle of February. GREAT!

So good! I got my cherries from the farmers market and it didn't say the kind but they were dark and sweet. I served it over some chicken I just had pan fried with a little S&P and garlic powder. Perfect! If you don't like sweet meat you won't like this....I also would say the balsamic is a must!
Served for husband's 45th birthday dinner. Tasty and different. Served with Roasted Lamb with Root Vegetables and Strawberry Blue Cheese Salad.
I love, love, love Flathead cherries! Had a summer job sorting them as a teenager. This compote is delicious!!
