Ciliege e Vino


  • 1 cup cherries, pitted

  • 1 1/2 cups bold red wine, like a Cabernet Sauvignon

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1 tablespoon orange zest

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg


Put all ingredients into a heavy but small put.  Heat pot on stove top over medium-low heat and let barely simmer, if at all, for 1/2 hour.  Remove from heat and let cool until it is not too warm to eat.
