I prepare cherry compote every time fresh sour cherries are available on the market. If you can find cleaned cherries - even better, your compote will be ready in 15 minutes. It's great to have a jar or two in winter time right? Here's a recipe I invented myself and it doesn't require much time or energy.


  • 1 kg cherries
  • 200 g sugar (or as desired)
  • 2-3 liters of water


  1.  Remove seeds from cherries and put into a larger container. Add sugar and pour 2-3 liters  of water.

  2. Put to cook, stir occasionally and boil for around 10 minutes. 
  3. Pour compote while hot in warm jars and close well. Store in dry and cold place.

That's it!
You can use blueberries, cornels or other fruits.
