2cupspitted and coarsely chopped dark sweet cherries
From your electric or crank ice cream maker, place the canister in the icebox and chill for about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl beat the eggs well. Whisk in the sugar until thickened and smooth.
Whisk in the cream, vanilla and almond extracts.
Stir in the cherries and then almonds.
Pour the mixture into the chilled canister. Pour in enough milk until it reaches the “Fill Line” of your 1 gallon canister.
Put the canister in the freezer bucket and alternate layers of ice and rock salt between the canister and bucket until it reaches close to the top.
Plug in or crack for about 30 minutes or until motor stops and ice cream is thick. Remove the dasher and seal the canister. Drain the water off of the ice and repack the freezer bucket with more ice and salt. Allow to set for about 1 hour to harden.
