Cherry Sorbet

It's hot here and that means I am again in the mood for ice cream. I'm also in the mood for the summer fruits - cherries, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries. This is my favorite season!

SP likes fruit sorbets much more than ice cream and I've been bugging him to buy cherries, so we decided to make Cherry Sorbet from David Lebovitz's The Perfect Scoop.
It's simple - 2 pounds of cherries (stemmed & pitted), lemon juice, sugar, and water cooked in a saucepan, add a bit of almond extract or kirsch (we used almond extract), puree in blender, chill overnight, churn in ice cream maker, and enjoy. (We also added some vodka when we churned it.)
This is delicious. Like I may have had 3-4 scoops Sunday evening delicious and then SP refused to give me any more. A really good, intense cherry flavor, not icy like some sorbets we have tried. Definitely a make again sorbet.

Recipe can be found here or here.
