- Place sugar and port in a medium saucepan over high heat and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 2 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Add cherries and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until cherries are plump and heated through. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
- Combine yogurt, cardamom and honey in a small bowl. Divide cherries among serving bowls. Serve warm or cold with yogurt.
Cardamom is a popular Indian spice that has a warm, spicy sweet flavour and aroma. It can be quite strong so a little bit goes a long way.
