How to Make Mama's Cheery Cherry Ice Cream
- Cherries stain your hands. You can wear thin rubber gloves (but I can't work with them on). So, to remove the cherry stain from your hands, you can use some lime (or lemon) juice to do the trick. Wash hands first as you normally would do, and then just dry your hands and squeeze at least one teaspoon of FRESH lime (or lemon) juice onto your palms. Rub your hands together for about 30 seconds – make sure to cover your hands completely with the fresh juice. Then rinse your hands in lukewarm water and wash with your regular hand soap and water –dry hands with a paper towel or cloth towel. The stains should be gone, but if not you can repeat the steps. You can also use a liberal amount of white vinegar (following the above steps) to remove the stains –but since the lime or lemon juice handy – I used it.
