Sunday wasn't bad either - the star of this Sunday were these Cherries, well, unfortunately probably the last of this season. After gobbling some, I thought of making this Sorbet. The weather complemented it very well too - it was one of the very few warm and sunny weekends this washed out summer.
The sorbet is easy to make, refreshing and a good blend of sour and sweet. It was just perfect for a lazy sunday!
I mixed a little elderflower syrup into the sorbet which gave an interesting side taste, with an added hint of flowers and sweetness. Hope you like it too.
250 gram - cherries, pitted
3/4 tsp + 1/4 tsp - lemon rind + to garnish
