Sour Cherry Sorbet

Rating: 4.5 stars 8
When sour cherries are in season, this preparation really shows off their color and flavor. Do not omit the salt as it keeps the sorbet 'scoopable' instead of a solid block of ice. Preparation time does not include time for pitting cherries. I get mine in Door County, Wisconsin, already pitted.

Sour Cherry Pudding Cake

Rating: 4.5 stars 26
This dessert is best served warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. It is also delicious cooled to room temperature. Plan on making it when it will be eaten within 36 hours. The soft cake part can become stale afterward. I tend to make this for company or for a dish to pass event. Preparation time does not include time for pitting cherries.

This is an old-fashioned fruit kuchen, a rich, buttery based dough, a layer of tart cherries mixed with an egg custard, and a streusel topping. This is a cherished family recipe originating from a friend of the family before WWII. Enjoy!
