Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • If using fresh cherries, spread onto a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze, uncovered, 6 hours or overnight.

  • Combine cold syrup and frozen cherries in a food processor fitted with blade attachment. Process 3 to 5 minutes or until mixture is smooth, scraping down sides of bowl after each minute.

  • Transfer sorbet to a freezer-safe container. Freeze at least 4 hours. Serves 6.
