Enjoy a vanilla and cherry ice cream recipe by Kathy Gori, made with in season Chelan cherries.


  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 2 cups of whipping cream
  • 1 and 1/2 cups of milk
  • 1 cup of pitted quartered cherries
  • 1/4 cup of chocolate pearls or 1/2 cup of small chocolate pieces.
  • 2 tsps of vanilla extract


  1. Wash and pit the cherries. I use my OXO Cherry Pitter.
  2. Cut the cherries in half and in half again to have nice bite sized pieces. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl mix together: 1 and 1/2 cup of milk and 3/4 cup of sugar.
  4. When this is well mixed and the sugar dissolved, add in 2 cups of whipping cream.
  5. Add in the vanilla.
  6. Whisk everything together well and pour it into an ice cream machine.
  7. Churn for about 20 minutes then add in the cherry pieces,and the chocolate pearls or pieces.
  8. The reason for waiting 20 minutes is you want the ice cream to be soft yet firm enough to support the cherries and chocolate pieces so they don’t all fall to the bottom of the machine and are well distributed through the ice cream.
  9. Let the machine churn for another 8 minutes or so, or until the ice cream is ready to be scooped into a container and put into the freezer.
  10. Let the ice cream “age” in the freezer for an hour or so, for the best texture.
  11. Serve it up!
