    Sackville's Note:

    We came across a cherry tree while staying in southern France and used some of our lovely fruit in this recipe. If you want to add another layer of flavour, try steeping some green tea in with the mixture, when you add the ginger. A dash of amaretto could be nice as well.

    1. 1
      Wash the cherries, then drain and pit them into a bowl, keeping all the juice.
    2. 2
      Place the cherries and their juice in a food processor or in a blender and purée. Pass the purée through a fine sieve, set over a saucepan, and throw away the pulp.
    3. 3
      Measure the cherries and add enough water to bring the total amount of fruit and water up to three cups. This should be about 2/3 cup water.
    4. 4
      Put the cherries and water in the saucepan over a medium heat, along with the sugar and the ginger.
    5. 5
      Cook until the sugar has dissolved, then take the pot off the heat and cool.
    6. 6
      Run through a sieve again, if you feel it is necessary.
    7. 7
      Pour into a shallow dish and freeze, stirring about once every hour, bringing ice crystals from the edge into the centre.
    8. 8
      It will take about 5 hours to freeze completely.
    9. 9
      Serve, or store in the freezer, covered, up to 2 days. You may have to take it out of the freezer for a few minutes before serving.
