- 1 1/2 cups pitted ripe sweet cherries
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 3/4 cups cream
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 pinch salt
Put cherries, milk, one cup of the cream, sugar, and salt into a medium saucepan. Heat on medium heat until the mixture is steamy, then lower the heat to warm and just let sit for about 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Pour mixture into a blender, or use an immersion blender, and carefully purée.
Put mixture into a large bowl. Stir in the remaining 3/4 cup of cream. Chill for several hours in the refrigerator until completely cold.
Churn the ice cream in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions. Serve immediately or you can firm up in the freezer for a few hours.
