The moment I saw this recipe, I knew I HAD to try it. I didn't even have a moment of hesitation. It was meant to be. You see, I love cherries and cream. I like to buy frozen cherries, sprinkle them with a bit of sugar, and then drizzle (ok, pour) cream over them. Mmm. And that's basically what this recipe is! Cherries, sugar, and cream! Tasty, frozen perfection. This is so going to be a regular in my ice cream arsenal. To mix it up a little, we tried pouring lemon lime pop over a bowl. It adds a little zip and fizz, for a bit of a different flavor. Fun!
- 3 cups Fresh Or Frozen Cherries, Pitted.
- 1 cup Sugar
- 1-1/2 cup Whole Milk
- 1 Tablespoon Heavy Cream
- Juice Of 1 Lemon
Add cherries to a saucepan with sugar. Bring to a slow boil and cook until cherries are soft and liquid is syrupy. Cool to room temperature.
Add cherries and juice to a blender or food processor. Blend until smoooth, stopping short of totally liquefying it if you'd like a little pulp. Add milk, cream, and lemon juice and blend briefly.
Freeze according to your ice cream maker's instructions, then transfer to an airtight freezer container and freeze for at least 24 hours before serving.
