friederike from Berlin,

Really, really delicious! I have only one criticism, which is also why this is a 4 star rating instead of 5, which is that I hardly noticed the cherries. There were just too few of them, and/or their flavour wasn't really strong; additionally, I would have expected a sauce or syrup to be folded into the ice cream. Next time we'll probably double the amount of cherries, keep some of the syrup apart and boil it down into a thick syrup which we can then fold into the ice cream at the very end.

We used Sour Cherries in Syrup for this recipe, and served it with Chocolate Brownies, a great combination!

Edited one day later:
We took another jar, and just boiled it down until it had just a little syrup left, then carefully folded that into the ice cream. Guess what? We thought it was too much, it made the toasted almonds disappear. I guess 1 1/2 jars (275-300g) would be just right.

DH additionally mentioned that he thought the almond extract wasn't necessary and gave a weird flavour - I didn't even notice and think you would taste the almonds even less then. Or maybe just stick to the original amount of cherries (with a little syrup), and omit the almond extract?
