"This is amazing. I'm making it for another dinner, 3rd one in 2 weeks! Everybody loves it. I served it in Belgian chocolate cups with a little whipped cream. Not so low fat that way, but yummy! My sour cherries are really dark like Bings so the sorbet is the colour of a really dark red wine. Beautiful."
