"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 necessary...it 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 ...

I have never seen a fresh sour cherry here in TX. When I ran across this recipe I knew I had 2 cans of sour cherries in the pantry so I experimented with those. I drained and gently pressed th...

Very good!

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