Ingredients

Cherry Compote
4 cups cherries (about 1 1/4 pounds), pitted and halved
1 cup fruity white or red wine
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon orange zest

Mascarpone
1 (8-ounce) tub Crave Brothers Farmstead Mascarpone
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon orange juice
2 teaspoons orange zest


For the compote, put cherries, wine, sugar and zest into a small pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer until thickened and cherries are very tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside. Meanwhile, for the mascarpone, stir together mascarpone, honey, juice and zest just until combined. Serve compote warm or cold, spooned over dollops of mascarpone.
