I tried to make this, I really did, but I'm not so sure what I should write. The bing cherries I had were not superlative, but were pretty good, eaten as is. I really love cherries, so wanted to try this recipe to showcase them. However, the processed raw cherries turned an unpleasant brown color, so I had to use the suggested food color - quite a lot of it. Then, with the present hot weather, my canister type ice cream maker was not able to freeze the mixture (not, of course the problem of the recipe). So, I froze the mixture and then whirled it in my food processor. It is understandably not so smooth as ice cream. But the flavor also is failing to wow me. Maybe because the cherries were not as flavorful as they should have been. Maybe because, in the end, I prefer my cherries straight. I don't know. It was an interesting experiment, though, and I would like to know more about Turkish food. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us. I'm not posting any stars.
