CHERRY TARRAGON SORBET
Cherry Tarragon Sorbet
This time of year, cherries are the fruit to get a hold of! I will admit making something with cherries is a challenge for me, considering that I love eating cherries as is. I had to make sure to not to dig into the cherries I bought specifically to make this refreshing Cherry Tarragon Sorbet. When my friend Louise first introduced me to a cherry, tarragon, and carob sorbet she made, I was intrigued. That's when I set out to make a similar sorbet. The results were fantastic and it's a delicious way to combine fresh fruit and herbs into a summer treat... This sorbet only calls for 5 ingredients. I used fresh cherries for this sorbet and loved the result. Sweet, yet tart and with a slight hint of tarragon. The tarragon gave it a nice herbal touch without being too strong. I was quite surprised how well the tarragon complimented the cherries. The other key ingredient was ground ginger. It added a little depth and balanced the tartness a bit. Who knew fresh herbs and fruit would work so well as a sorbet? I especially liked how this was a perfect palate cleanser after a meal!
