This versitile compote can go savory or sweet. Try it as a sandwich spread or stirred into plain yogurt.
In a small saucepan, combine cherries, sugar, fresh rosemary, and 1 tablespoon water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until cherries are nice and tender and liquid is slightly thickened, 12 to 15 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in vinegar; season lightly with salt and pepper. Let stand at room temperature until cool. Serve or store.
Stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator, the compote should last up to two weeks.
