Sweet cherries and the pine scent of rosemary make this an ideal dessert for a summer dinner party on the patio. The recipe can be doubled for larger crowds. 

  • 5Servings


  • 1 cup buttermilk 
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, broken into 2-inch pieces
  • 3 Tbs. maple syrup
  • 2 10-oz. bags frozen, pitted organic dark sweet cherries 


  1. Place buttermilk, rosemary, and maple syrup in heavy saucepan over medium-low heat. Adjust heat so that mixture does not boil. Stir and heat through 10–15 minutes to allow rosemary to permeate buttermilk. Strain, and set aside to cool.
  2. Place buttermilk mixture and cherries in food processor. Blend 1–2 minutes, until mixture smooths out. Stir, and blend again to form a soft, thick, frozen slurry. You will see flecks of cherry in dark red ice cream. Serve immediately in individual bowls.
