    Ingredients
    Serves: 8 

    • 225g fresh cherries, pitted
    • 400ml whipping cream, divided
    • 180ml milk

    1. Heat cherries, 250ml whipping cream, milk, caster sugar and salt in a saucepan over medium heat until mixture starts to steam, 5 to 7 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking for 15 minutes more.
    2. Pour cherry mixture into a blender no more than half full. Cover and hold lid down; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Puree in batches until smooth. Transfer blended mixture to a large bowl and stir in remaining 150ml cream.
    3. Chill in the fridge until completely cold, about 2 hours; stir in amaretto liqueur, lemon juice and cornflour. Pour into the container of an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.

    Tip:

    Take the ice cream out of the freezer for 5-10 minutes before serving, or longer, so it comes to the right scooping temperature. Scoop it with a hot, but dry, ice-cream spoon (soak it in boiling water, then wipe dry).
