I'd never had cherry ice cream until last year. I fell in love with the stuff when I wanted some flavor other than vanilla to serve with brownies at Christmas and purchased some at the grocery store. To further my love affair, I adapted another flavor recipe that came with my ice cream machine and used canned dark cherries. Yum!
Prepare your ice cream machine according to the manufacturer's directions and churn the ice cream until it is frozen. Transfer the ice cream to a plastic container, cover the ice cream with cling wrap (to avoid ice crystals) and a lid, and place in the freezer for a couple of hours to cure, or according to your machine's directions.
