Cherry Balsamic Compote
- In a small saucepan combine cherries, orange rind, cinnamon stick, water, honey or sugar, and salt.
- Bring to a boil over medium heat and stir well. Reduce heat to low; simmer for 5 minutes, then add the balsamic vinegar and cook 3-4 minutes until slightly thickened and reduced to about 1 cup. Remove cinnamon stick.
- Serve warm or refrigerate until cool, about 20 minutes. Store covered in refrigerator for up to five days.
