Instructions
  1. Place the cherries in the food processor fitted with the chopping blade. Pulse cherries until roughly or finely chopped depending on your preference. I like a mix. Reserve cherries in bowl till needed.
  2. In a medium bowl combine the milk, sugar and salt and using a hand mixer on low speed or a whisk, mix until sugar is dissolved.
  3. Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla.
  4. Stir in the chopped cherries with all the juices.
  5. Cover the bowl with cling wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours but preferably overnight.
  6. Fit the ice cream paddle to the machine.
  7. Remove the ice cream from the fridge and whisk the mixture before pouring into the ice cream maker.
  8. Follow the instructions for your brand of ice cream maker. I am using a Cuisinart compressor ice cream maker.
  9. Turn the unit on, set the timer for 40 minutes and press start.
Recipe Notes

This ice cream has a smooth creamy texture. If you want a firmer consistency transfer the ice cream to an airtight container (I use a Tupperware Rock n Serve as it is just the right size) and place in the freezer for about 2 hours.

Remove from the freezer 15 mins before serving.
