Ingredients

  • 2 lbs Craigie's Cherries
  • 1 cup Water
  • 2/3 cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp Fresh Lemon Juice

Method

  1. Stem the cherries and remove the pits.
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the cherries with the water, sugar and lemon juice and cook until the cherries are very soft and cooked through, for about 10-15 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and let it cool to room temperature, then refrigerate to chill thoroughly.
  4. Puree the cherries and their liquid and put the mixture through a fine sieve.
  5. Once the cherry mixture is chilled, freeze according to your ice cream maker’s instructions. Alternatively, look online for non-machine options for making sorbet.
