Nanking Cherry and Almond Sorbet

Author Notes: We planted cherry bushes several years ago, and this summer they really took off. Nanking cherries are the size of large peas, and bright vibrant red with a sweet tart flavor.Kathleen D

Serves: 2

  • 2.5 cups Nanking cherries, small stems removed
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  1. Add the cherries, water, and sugar to a medium sauce pan over medium heat, and cook until cherries are soft and just begin to break apart.
  2. D.rain the cherries in a wire colander over a large bowl, and press the cherry pulp throught (the mini pits will stay behind in the colander); transfer to a small container, stir in almond extract, and place in refrigerator until completely chilled.
  3. Freeze according wtih your ice cream maker instructions; enjoy!
