Recipe Notes

Sorbet can be made ahead of time.  I have tested it for 4 days with great results

If using frozen cherries make sure they are defrosted and check for any pit fragments which may remain

The whipped cream isn't necessary but a pretty darn delicious addition.  The cherries and whipped cream are meant to be! :)
