I love, love, love, sour cherries. But I can never find any in the local stores here in Southwestern PA or at any of the farmers markets. My aunt, who lives in Ithaca, NY, makes cherry jam with them. And it is my all time favorite spread on toast. She adds just a little almond extract to her jam and it is soooo goooood!!! Tim, I can only imagine how wonderful your frozen yogurt must taste….I guess I’ll just have to hope I’ll taste it in my dreams tonight!
Oh, this looks so, so good. I have my own frozen cherry dessert that I make a lot in the summer–basically just dumping some frozen cherries in the food processor with some cocoa powder and chocolate chips. It turns into this deliciously creamy cross between ice cream and sorbet. The sour cherries make your recipe sound even better.
LKP-It will not be the same to just freeze it, part of what the ice cream maker does is incorporate air. By freezing I you will just end up with a yogurt ice cube.

I know this post is a few years old, but it’s definitely a good one. Just followed this recipe with some sour cherries out here in California, and I’m very happy with the results. The flavor reminds me of a cobbler, and the results are creamier than I was expecting. Thanks!
