I love cherries but hate how expensive they are. For such a small fruit that requires a decent amount of work, they’re pretty darn expensive! I went a bit overboard on buying them when they were on sale at the grocery store. I had planned out a dinner and dessert involving them with some extras left over for snacks. After making the dinner and dessert, I still had quite a bit left over. So I randomly decided to make cherry sorbet without the help of my KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker, because my freezer was too full to hold the bowl.Print
