Ingredients

2 1/4 cups red wine

1 cup sugar

1 1-by-3-inch strip orange zest

2 pounds sweet cherries, halved and pitted

1 cup mascarpone cheese

2 1/2 tablespoons honey

Directions

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 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.
