Liquorice Cherry Compote

Makes 4 serves

Star anise is a spice native to China and Vietnam, which is generally sold dried and has a pungent smell and powerful flavour much like liquorice. This somewhat unusual compote gets its liquorice flavour from being infused with star anise during the cooking process. Even if you aren't a fan of liquorice, try it. Don't argue. The star anise does not overpower the cherries. Spoon over some yoghurt and top with almond slivers.

What's in it?

200g frozen pitted cherries
20g maple syrup or brown sugar
1 star anise
10g water
2tsp orange zest, finely grated (optional)

How do I make it? 

Place all ingredients in mixing bowl and cook for 10min / 100°C / reverse / speed 1 with MC removed. Remove star anise before serving. 

There are 2 ProPoints for the whole recipe, so count 1 ProPoint for a 1/4 serve.


Store in airtight jar or container in fridge for up to 5 days.
