Sweet Cherry Compote on Freshly Preserved Ideas

This sweet cherry compote, flavored with fresh rosemary and plenty of lemon zest, is the perfect way to extend the deliciousness of cherry season. And if cherry season is already past in your area, try it with frozen cherries! 

A gif featuring the steps of making sweet cherry compote.

As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve teaming up with the folks at Ball Canning (much like I did last year) this summer. The goal is to help spread the word about the many pleasures of home canning. As part of our collaboration, I developed a series of five recipes that will live on the Ball Canning Tumblr. It’s called Freshly Preserving Ideas and it’s bursting with good ideas.

So far, we’ve shared three of the recipes I developed for them. They are Blackberry Lavender Jam, Garlicky Pickled Green Beans, and Heirloom Tomato Chutney. Today, I bring you recipe number four! Sweet Cherry Compote with Rosemary and Lemon.

Now, I realize that fresh sweet cherries are a bit hard to come by this time of year. However, you could just as easily make this preserve with frozen cherries. Don’t pass it up just because the season for fresh cherries is past. These cherries are delicious with roast meat or spooned over homemade ice cream.

Disclosure: I am a paid ambassador for Ball Canning. They compensated me for the development of this recipe!

  1. this looks fabulous! when looking at recipes that call for fresh Cherries by the cup, how do you transfer that amount to frozen cherries?
