2 1/4 cups dry red wine
1 cup sugar
One 1-by-3-inch strip grated orange zest
2 pounds sweet cherries, halved and pitted
1 cup mascarpone cheese
2 1/2 tablespoons honey




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 that 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.


Variations: The warm cherries and poaching liquid are great alone - without the mascarpone cream - or with whipped cream. Serve the mascarpone cream with cut up fresh fruit or mixed berries instead of with the poached cherries.

Top the granita with a hefty portion of whipped cream; you’ll need the mild sweetness of the cream to balance the strong espresso.
