Cherry Nectarine Compote is a simple topping made with fresh summer cherries and nectarines. This is a five ingredient recipe which is easy to put together and delicious. When summer fruits are at their peak, they really are the stars and minimal extra is required.
This compote is roasted on a sheet pan. There is nothing easier than this and the results are wonderful. A few years ago I started making Roasted Strawberries and found that roasting creates a nice sauce and intensifies the flavor.
You can serve Cherry Nectarine Compote over vanilla ice cream for dessert and it would also be a wonderful topping for your morning oatmeal or yogurt bowl.
