2 cups BC Tree Fruits Cherries, pitted
1/4 cup honey
1 quart half and half
1 cup ricotta
3 pinches sea salt
3 drops almond extract


Melt 2 cups of pitted BC Tree Fruits cherries with a the honey. (Two minutes in the microwave or until soft enough on the stove). Turn on your ice cream maker (I have the Stainless Steel Cuisinart), and pour in your half and half. Leave the machine on for about 2 minutes.

Add the ricotta and salt to the machine mixture. Let it spin for about another 5 minutes then add the almond extract & the melted cherry mixture.
Let the mixture churn until thick, and enjoy or let freeze for a firmer  texture!!!!

What are your favourite homemade ice cream recipes, or what recipe do you want me to try???? Have a fabulous weekend all!!
