B.C. Cherry Compote

4 cups - B.C. cherries, pitted
½ cup - sugar
½ cup - fresh orange juice
1 tsp - orange zest
1 stick - cinnamon
½ cup - red wine
2 tsp - corn starch
2 tbsp - cold water

Add cherries and sugar to a sauce pan and cook on medium heat until the sugar dissolves and the cherries start to release juice. Add orange juice, zest, cinnamon and wine and simmer on low heat until the cherries are tender but not mushy.

In a separate bowl, mix the corn starch and water. Slowly pour the mixture into the cherry compote and stir until the compote thickens. Serve on sweet dishes as is, or add a dash of salt, pepper and mustard and serve on savoury dishes.
