Cherry Pomegranate Sorbet


current obsession.

Summer. I love you, I do. I spend the last days of winter dreaming about your warmth, every single year. I love your long days, your wonderful light, your abundance of fresh fruit and veggies. You have plenty of things going for you, but there are a few things I’d like to discuss. Namely, your sweltering heat. Your oppressive humidity. What’s with that? Could we at least do something about the humidity? It makes me want to sit in the air conditioning, avoid turning on the oven at all costs and eat nothing but cold things.

Which, actually, isn’t really that bad, now that I think about it. It leads to tasty things like this cherry pomegranate sorbet. So thanks for that, Summer.

A while ago the lovely folks at Pom Wonderful sent me a whole bunch of their yummy pomegranate juice, the moment I opened up the package I knew what I wanted to make - pom sorbet. But then my brother and I drank all the juice. Opps!

I still had the pomegranate sorbet on the mind though, so I purchased some more, this time their cherry pomegranate juice. I had cherries in the fridge and I’ve been loving them so much lately, the idea of cherry pomegranate sorbet sounded too good to pass up.

And oh, honey, it is good. So good. Like I could eat the every day for the rest of my life good. It’s sweet, but the flavors of the cherry and pomegranate just shine through. Please, make this ASAP. Even if it’s winter where you live. This sorbet transcends seasons.

Cherry Pomegranate Sorbet

This recipe makes 1 quart - the vodka is the secret ingredient. It keeps it from freezing into a solid, impenetrable mass. You don’t taste it at all!

1⁄2 cup sugar

3 cups pomegranate juice
1 cup water
2 tablespoons vodka
3/4 cup sweet cherries, chopped

Place sugar, 1 cup water, and pomegranate juice in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over low heat, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Refrigerate until well chilled. Add vodka.

Process in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions. After 10 minutes in ice cream maker, add cherries.

  28. That looks delicious! I love sorbet and I love Pomegranate. Oh and Christelle mentioned Clafoutis which is super yummy too. Maybe Chery Clafoutis with your Cherry Pomegranate Sorbet would be a good dessert menu. I think I am going to need to get a cherry fix. LOL
