How to Make Cherry Sorbet:

You won’t believe how easy it is to make this recipe! The first thing you’ll want to do is be sure you have everything you need. There’s nothing worse than getting halfway through a recipe only to realize that you’re missing something. Lucky for you, you won’t need much for this recipe!

We’ll start by making a simple syrup. In a small pot over medium heat, add your water and sugar. Stir the water into the sugar and bring the mixture to a boil. Once you’ve reached a boil, reduce the heat to a medium-low temperature and let simmer for 4-5 minutes. Be sure to continue stirring the mixture frequently to keep the sugar from sticking to the bottom of the pot.

Once the sugar is completely dissolved and the 4-5 minutes has passed, transfer the simple syrup to another container and place it in the freezer to help it cool quickly.

Next, add your frozen cherries to a high-speed blender or large food processor and pulse a few times to roughly chop the fruit. Squeeze the juice from half of a lemon into the container with the roughly chopped fruit, along with the chilled simple syrup.

Blend the ingredients on high until the mixture is completely smooth and no more chunks of frozen cherries remain. Transfer the contents from the container to a freezer-safe dish for 3-4 hours or until solid. It’s optional, but in order to keep large ice crystals from forming, I would recommend stirring the mixture every hour for the first 3 hours or so.

Once it’s done, you’re ready to enjoy!

Cherry Sorbet FAQ

How do I keep my cherry sorbet from turning rock solid?

One of the reasons I love this recipe is because it freezes so well without having to soften. This is due to the use of simple syrup! The sugar helps maintain a freezing point that’s not too low and not too high, but just right.

How do you store homemade sorbet?

If you don’t plan to enjoy this the same day, you’ll want to store it in an airtight container in the freezer.

What kind of dish should I freeze this in?

I used a pie dish for freezing, largely because I knew a more shallow dish would freeze the cherry sorbet much faster than if you used something like a loaf pan. But if you don’t have a pie pan, you can use whatever dish you’d like.

How long will this dish keep?

You can keep this in the freezer for up to one month. Since this recipe is homemade, it’s free from preservatives so you shouldn’t expect it to last as long as something you purchased from the grocery store.

What makes sorbet creamy?

The secret to making creamy, delicious cherry sorbet is using simple syrup. The right amount of sugar has to be present to keep the mixture from freezing solid. With that said, I would not recommend making this dish without sugar.
