Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 40 minutes

Servings: 8 people

Preparation

1. Heat the pitted cherries in a saucepan with the sugar, lime and cherry brandy (if using). Bring to a simmer and cook for 35-40 minutes, until the mixture is thick and sticky. Remove the saucepan from the heat and leave the mixture to cool completely.

2. Pour the softened ice cream into a large freezer-proof container with a lid and add three quarters of the cold cherry mixture. Using a large spoon or spatula, gently swirl the cherry mixture through the ice cream to create a ripple effect. Freeze for 4 hours, or until solid.

3. To serve, scoop the ice cream into bowls and spoon over a little of the remaining cherry mixture, if you like.
