Zinfandel Cherry Sorbet Recipe
½ cup water
1 cup zinfandel (or other dark red wine)
½ cup coconut sugar
3 cups of sweet cherries, pitted and frozen
1. Six hours or more ahead of time, combine the zinfandel, coconut sugar, and water in a small saucepan. Keeping the burner on very low heat, reduce this mixture down until it is ¾ to 1/2 cup of liquid. (This takes about one hour, but for this recipe for sorbet, is worth the wait!). Set aside to cool, and then refrigerate until cold.
2. Place the chilled wine and sugar reduction along with the 3 cups of frozen cherries and the juice of one lime.
3. Using a Vitamix or a regular household blender start machine on low, turn machine on and increase to medium for five seconds, then slowly increase to High for about one minute. Use the tamper to push the ingredients into the blades. Reduce to low for an additional 15 to 30 seconds.
4. Serve up immediately and enjoy!!
