Very yummy. Next time I'd probably add some cinnamon and/or chipotle powder for a little kick, but it's also great as-is.
I made pancakes and ladled this on the pancakes and added a dollop of sour cream. It was wonderful!
The best flavors of summer captured in an easy and flavorful dish. Since I was preparing this to meet my WW Core diet, I replaced the sugar with Splenda adding it in after the initial 7 minutes of cooking time. Another 4 minutes and the fruit was tender and just short of falling apart and swimming in a lush red syrup. Since I used fresh cherries, it involved a little more effort but it was well worth it. I had half served warm over yogurt and the other chilled and served plain. Both were superb!
This compote is more than delicious. Far superior in my opinion to rhubarb-strawberry combos! A pie from this recipe would (will!) be outstanding. I used fresh rhubarb and canned cherries; it was super easy. I did simmer it, uncovered, quite a bit longer than the suggested 3 minutes (more like 15, watching and stirring carefully) to get the texture I prefer, but that was personal preference. I will make this again and again. Thanks so much for posting.
