Here is a very basic cherry sorbet recipe. I would think you could gussy it up in a ton of ways. For example - add 1/2 teaspoon of almond or vanilla extract. Maybe mixing in some kirsch or chocolate liqueur. You can also try spices like cinnamon, cloves, and allspice. I found some pomegranate molasses in the fridge, it might be a good substitute for some of the sugar or the corn syrup. Play around and have some fun.
I am in a cherry mood. I will be making a cherry ice cream soon to incorporate into an ice cream cake. The recipe will hopefully be up by the end of the weekend, but no promises.
About 3/8 cup of sugar
2 Tablespoons corn syrup
1/2 cup water
1 pound cherries
Juice of 1/2 small lime
- Combine the water, sugar and corn syrup. Bring to a boil. remove from the heat.
- Pit the cherries and put them in a blender
- Put the fruit, lime juice, sugar water into a blender and blend for 30 seconds or so, until everything is liquid.
- Chill over night then freeze in your ice cream machine the next day.
