Sour Cherry Sorbet

Sour Cherry Sorbet

CJ 21

"When sour cherries are in season, this preparation really shows off their color and flavor. Do not omit the salt as it keeps the sorbet 'scoopable' instead of a solid block of ice. Preparation time does not include time for pitting cherries. I get mine in Door County, Wisconsin, already pitted."

  1. Place the cherries into the work bowl of a food processor, and process until pureed, about 1 minute. Add sugar, white wine, almond extract, and salt to the pureed cherries, and process again to mix well, about 30 seconds.
  2. Pour the mixture into a 6-cup freezer container with a flat bottom. Cover the sorbet, and freeze until partially frozen, 3 to 4 hours. Stir and scrape the frozen sorbet into the soft part of the sorbet to mix well; cover and freeze 2 to 3 more hours. Repeat stirring and scraping, cover again, and freeze overnight.

I don't think the alcohol is gave it just a slightly odd aftertaste. but it's a fabulous recipe.

I followed this recipe exactly (using my Cuisinart Sorbet Maker) and it was delicious. The flavor is very intense. I toyed with the idea of reducing the sugar slightly and making another batch...

I found that the wine (I used a chardonnay) really was masked by the cherry flavour. I realise the salt plays a part in the sorbet, but I thought it was excessive. This could easily be a great ...

Very good!

Really beautiful and packs a powerful flavor punch. Also a delightful garnish in summer adult beverages, using a melon baller!
