Cherry Lime Sorbet

Living here in Southwest Idaho we have a lot of great places to pick your own produce, which comes in handy when you don’t have acreage to grow your own. I try and support local orchards and pick your own farms when it comes to things I don’t grow. Someday I would love to have fruit trees and a much larger garden, but for now we make a day of it and visit the beautiful orchards close by. Cherries are always the first crop of the year for pick your own. Usually by the fourth of July there are berries and apricots too.

Last year we picked these beautiful Bing cherries and brought them home and ate as many as we could handle. I know when we are out picking fresh cherries that we won’t be able to eat all them all so I have to freeze a majority of them. Before freezing them I have to pit them.  I followed the instructions in the short video found here to make your own cherry pitter from a fork and it works like a charm.

Once the daunting task of picking pounds and pounds of cherries is pitting them all. Once all my cherries are pitted, I lay them out on a cookie sheet and place them in the freezer. Once they are frozen I transfer them to labeled and dated freezer bags to use for recipes like blender sorbet.

To Make Blender Sorbet

Dissolve the sugar in a saucepan with water to make a simple syrup. Place the frozen pitted cherries in a high-powered blender add the simple syrup and lime juice and start by pulsing the blender. Once ingredients begin to incorporate blend on medium/high until the mixture becomes smooth. Serve immediately or place in a bread pan lined with plastic wrap. Set out 5 minutes before serving.
