Everyone loves cherry juice, cherry ice cream, and best of all, cherry pie; however, it is an additional step to remove the pits of cherries so that you can enjoy your cherry favorites. Check out our tips and tricks below to more easily pit cherries.
Use a frosting tip: If you don’t have a traditional cherry pitter, use the small end of a frosting tip to gently push the pit out of the cherry.
Use a chop stick: Using the thin end of a chopstick is the easiest way to push a pit through a cherry with ease.
Use a straw: Use a standard straw to push a cherry pit through the cherry.

Dare we say this ice cream is as delicious as the whole milk option? We think it just might pass the test. Try our milk alternative ice cream recipe for all your dairy-free friends.
Start by picking a non-dairy ice cream base. Here are some of the ones we have tried:
Note that different milks give different results. Take time to look through the fat content of each type, as ones with higher fat will make a creamier ice cream. In order to control the ice cream flavor best, we recommend getting an unsweetened and plain flavor.
Try our recipe for dairy-free chocolate ice cream!
3 cups unsweetened almond milk
6 large egg yolks
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp xantham gum (optional)
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Heat a saucepan over medium heat and combine cocoa powder and half of your almost milk. Whisk consistently until combined. Then add remaining almond milk and bring it to a simmer (stir occasionally). Remove from heat after around 3 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl, add your egg yolks and whisk them until they are light in color. Gradually add sugar while whisking frequently to emulsify the two. Look for a thick mixture that slowly falls from your whisk.
Scoop your warmed cocoa powder and milk mixture in a 1/3 cup and combine with your eggs. Whisk to combine. Add remaining liquid in slowly and gradually, then mix until they are all combined.
If you chose to get xantham gum, you can add it here and mix once more all together to help thicken your ice cream.
Then, add the vanilla extract and mix one final time. Cover your bowl and refrigerate for a minimum of 6-8 hours but preferably over night. Remove once completely cooled.
This is best added to a chilled ice cream container that you have pre-chilled overnight as well.
Serve as a soft serve if eaten quickly, or continue to chill in the freezer for 6-8 hours in a freezer safe container.

Food Club® red velvet cake mix
Food Club® 1 gallon vanilla ice cream
Heat oven according to box instructions and mix cake according to box instruction. Grease a baking sheet well, line with parchment, and grease again. Pour cake mixture into baking sheet and bake for 7-10 minutes until the cake starts to pull away from the sides of the pan.
While the cake is cooling, lay out a kitchen towel and dust with powdered sugar. Dump the cake onto the towel and roll into the classic swirl. Let cool the rest of the way while rolled.
Once completely cooled, unroll the cake and smooth 1 inch of slightly softened ice cream across the entire cake. Re-roll and set in freezer for 6-12 hours.
