Roasted Cherries with Maple Syrup and Rosemary

Rather gorgeous, these cherries are quite delicious on their own or fabulous as an accompaniment, both warm and cold, to cheeses and ice creams: well worth doing…very yummy!

What you need…

400g cherries, pitted and halved

3 tablespoons maple syrup

4 rosemary sprig, bruised

Pinch of salt

1 tablespoon lemon juice

What to do…

Preheat your oven to 180˚c / gas 4.

Combine the cherries with the maple syrup and rosemary on a baking tray. Scatter with a pinch of salt and roast for 30-40 minutes, until the cherries just start to wrinkle and give up some of their juice. Immediately stir through the lemon juice.

Remove the rosemary sprigs and serve as a warm topping with mascarpone or ricotta, on ice cream or as a side with goat’s cheese. They’re equally good cold with blue cheese or brie, to jazz up a salad or as part of breakfast!
