It’s a beautiful looking sorbet for summer days and the taste is mmm good!!
The fresh cherries are what sets this sorbet apart from others! The rich color is natural. No food color or extra flavoring needed! The taste is exceptional. Totally worth the effort!
Amy made it the night before everyone came over for our Father’s Day Party. The weather was perfect! We had dinner and yard games. Lots of fun.
She sat at the counter and pulled the stems off as she pitted each one! Two pounds worth! Earlier in the day she borrowed Nancy’s ice cream maker and bought ice.
Frozen would work too. In a pinch, canned. But fresh is best!
If there is one dish that says summer, it is homemade ice cream. Sorbet is a change that no one will complain about!
Church ice cream socials on hot Sunday nights after church were the best. Everyone brought their best. Often that was the traditional peach ice cream. This cherry sorbet rivals that!
Scraping the paddles clean into a large bowl for serving. Any left? Freeze it for a snack later.
