Chocolate Mint Dessert Pot with Cherries

Step 1: Place the water and sugar in a pot and place over high heat. Bring to the boil.

Step 2: Add the lemon zest and continue to cook until syrupy.

Step 3: Add the pitted morello cherries and cook until quite viscous, but not falling apart; there should be almost no syrup left, just enough to hold the softened cherries together.


  1. 1 tspn lemon juice
  2. 1 lemon zested
  3. 1/2 cup caster sugar
  4. 2 cups water
  5. 1/2 cup creme fraiche to serve (optional)
