Thick mascarpone cheese mixed with honey makes a luscious topping for poached cherries. You can serve the dessert either warm or cold. We love it both ways.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
2 1/4 cups red wine
1 cup sugar
1 1-by-3-inch strip orange zest
2 pounds sweet cherries, halved and pitted
1 cup mascarpone cheese
2 1/2 tablespoons honey

DIRECTIONS
In a medium stainless-steel saucepan, combine the wine, sugar, and orange zest. Bring to a simmer over medium high heat. Add the cherries and return to a simmer. Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, until the cherries are just tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl so the cherries don't overcook.


In a small bowl, combine the mascarpone with the honey. Remove the strip of orange zest from the cherries. Serve the warm cherries and syrup in bowls or stemmed glasses. Top with a large dollop of the mascarpone cream.


Variations


  • The warm cherries and poaching liquid are great alone--without the mascarpone cream or with whipped cream.
  • Serve the mascarpone cream with cut up fresh fruit or mixed berries instead of with the poached cherries.
