Cherry Kompot (Homemade Juice)

2954 W Irving Park Rd, Chicago, IL 60618, USA

Hi Everyone,

welcome to my brand new blog for Astoria Cafe & Bakery. People always ask me on social media to share recipes, so here we are. 
I am going to kick this blog of with a very simple recipe for Kompot. Considering that we are in the midst of summer, I figured we all need something refreshing in our lives. 

Kompot is very popular in the Slavic speaking countries and it's non alcoholic drink made out of fruits and water. It can served hot or cold, depending on the season.  I'd say it's kind of the Eastern European version of Iced Tea. Compared to the store bought juices, this is very healthy option since it only uses three simple ingredients and it has half of the sugar used in soda.

 My very good customer & friend Dr Dragana Dakic recently went cherry picking with her family in Wisconsin's Door Country. She brought me back a few pounds of cherries, so I figured what better way use to use them and kick off my blog.

The basic recipe for Kompot includes a gallon of water, a cup of sugar and a pound to pound and a half fruit of choice.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add fruits to the boiling water and let simmer for 15 minutes. Add sugar or/and honey to sweeten it. Use Swerve or any other artifical sugar if you're on the keto diet. You can store the Kompot in a glass container in the fridge for about five days.
