1) Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Wash cherries, halve them, and remove the pits. Lay out cherry halves on a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes until they are slightly withered and the juices are bubbling.
2) Let cherries cool briefly and then add to a blender with other ingredients. Blend until mostly smooth.
3) Transfer to the fridge to chill completely or add the mixture to a bowl in a large bowl with ice/salt/water to chill quickly.
4) Churn the mixture in your ice cream maker according to instructions. When it reaches a soft serve consistency, transfer to a freezer safe container and freeze until solid, stirring once or twice as it freezes.
I think it’s best to let this thaw for five minutes so it softens a bit before serving.
