Cherry–Pinot Noir Sorbet with Ginger
Timberline Lodge - Timberline Lodge, OR
This cherry sorbet, complemented by the red-fruit and earthy flavors of Pinot Noir, gets a dose of bracing spice from fresh ginger.
- 2 pounds (about 8 cups) fresh sweet cherries
- 1 cup Pinot Noir
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
Wash, stem, and, pit the cherries. In a plastic bowl, toss the cherries with the Pinot Noir, sugar, lemon juice, and ginger. Refrigerate overnight.
In a medium pot, bring the cherry-wine mixture to a boil over medium heat. Reduce to a simmer and continue simmering for 15 minutes. Transfer to a blender and purée until smooth. Refrigerate until cold.
Process the mixture in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions. Freeze for at least an hour before serving.
