If you’ve asked me what summer foods come to my mind, I would definitely name my Granny’s cherry kompot. It’s refreshing, extremely sweet and definitely belongs to one of my favourite summer recipes😍
INGREDIENTS (cca. 2 servings):
- 500g cherries
- 1l water
- 1-2 tbsp sugar
- Pit cherries.
- Put the pitted cherries into a pot filled with water (1l) and bring to a boil.
- Reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 10 minutes and then add 1 or 2 tablespoons of sugar (The more sugar you add, the sweeter the soup is, however in my view 2 tablespoons are the ideal amount.). Simmer again for approximately 5 minutes.
- The kompot is done! I strain out the cherries before putting the kompot into the fridge (I love cold food, I find it extremely refreshing especially in the summer.). I pour the kompot into soup bowls and serve it with regular noodles.
