Cherry ( licious ) Ice cream
Summer is such a thirsty business ......
I'm so happy and very delighted when I saw loads of lusciously delectable cherries at our local market
I thought after those gorgeously cheap cherries early this year , the next time I'm going to see cherries again will be next year ....
Just like Maltesers , which I just can't stop eating that the last time I baked cookies that calls for malted choco , there were not just enough to use ! Good thing choco chips as a sub were just as good ^__^''
Cherries like Maltesers are one of those food that once you pop , you just can't stop er that's Pringles hee hee
So did I use fresh cherries ?!
Fresh cherries are for snacking ! Okay ! Okay , there were not enough to make this batch of ice cream lol
I got a standby , canned cherries , which I bought last year just in case , you know ! -__-' pfffttttt
1 can / 439 grams dark sweet cherries in heavy syrup , I used S&W brand
2 1/2 tablespoon sugar
generous tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon cherry brandy , I used Bols
pinch of salt
scant cup of heavy cream
2/3 cup whole milk
50 grams each of milk and white chocolate chips
* Combine the first 5 ingredients in a medium saucepan , cook for 10 minutes ; stirring from time to time until the mixture are very soft . Let cool and transfer to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth ; - I got a cup of cherry puree from this cooked mixture - add the cream and milk and blend until smooth . transfer to a bowl and chill for at least an hour .
* Pour the mixture in an ice cream maker and churn ; add in the choco chips after the last minute of churning ; transfer to the freezerproof container and freeze overnight .
