  • 2 cups ripe cherries pitted chopped
  • cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp sea salt 
  • 2 tbsp water 
  • 2 tbsp orange juice 
  • 1 tsp orange juice
  • 2 ¼ cups heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Place the cherries, granulated sugar, water, orange juice, and orange zest into a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Allow the cherries to come up to a boil, then decrease the heat to medium-low.  
  • Simmer the cherry orange mixture until the sugar crystals dissolve and the cherries have softened. Pour the cherry mixture into a blender with 1/2 cup of heavy cream and blend it into a smooth puree. 
  • Pour the blended cherries into a bowl with the heavy cream and vanilla extract and stir to combine. Refrigerate the cherry ice cream base for 3-4 hours or overnight. 
  • Pour the cherry ice cream base into an ice cream machine and follow the manufacturer's instructions to churn it.
  • Transfer the cherry ice cream into an airtight freezer-safe container and freeze it for 3-4hours. 


  • If using frozen cherries, do not thaw them before cooking them with sugar, water, orange juice, and zest. If you thaw, your frozen cherries may cause discoloration.
