Cherries in their juice

New recipe

Ingredients (4 servings)
  • 600 g cherries
  • a vanilla pod
  • 20 g butter
  • 40 g caster sugar
  • 150 ml red wine


Rinse 600 g of cherries, remove their stalks and stones. Split a vanilla pod open lengthwise.

Melt 20 g of butter and 40 g of caster sugar together in a frying pan, add the cherries and cook them for 2 minutes over a high heat, stirring to coat them well.

Cut the vanilla pod in half and scrape with the blade of a knife to detach the seeds and mix with the cherries.

Pour in 150 ml of red wine and cook for just 1 minute, stirring continuously and gently.

Tip the cherries and their juice into a fruit dish and put in a cold place until you are ready to serve.
