Is anyone else sweating their clothes off this week?Â I mean, it’s been more than 1o0 degrees every day this week here in Nashville.Â And that’s why I have to get the ice cream recipes out of the kitchen cabinet & into my belly!
Enjoy this delicious Cherry Ice Cream Recipe that really lights up a party.
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup whole milk
1/4 cup honey (light flavored honey is best for this recipe)
3/4 pounds Bing, Lapin, or Sweetheart cherries, pitted and torn into chunks
3T. cherry liquor or cherry brandy or Amaretto
Place cream, milk, and honey in a medium saucepan. Stir to dissolve the honey. Heat over low to moderate heat, stirring from time to time, until tiny bubbles form around the edges of the pan. Be careful not to heat to a full-out boil.
Remove from the heat and let cool for 5 minutes. Add the chopped cherries and liquor. Cover and refrigerate until completely chilled. Don’t skimp here or your ice-cream might not set up.
Stir the mixture again to blend and transfer it to an ice cream maker. Freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions and eat the same day.
Makes 1 quart.
