About This Recipe
"Food & Wine. Italian"
2 1/4 cups
sweet cherries, halved and pitted
2 1/2 tablespoons
In a medium stainless-steel saucepan, combine the wine, sugar, and orange zest. Bring to a simmer over moderately high heat.
Add the cherries and bring back to a simmer. Reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, until the cherries are just tender, about 5 minutes. Pour into a glass or stainless-steel 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, topped with a large dollop of the mascarpone cream.
