Tart Cherry Sorbet

A great dessert to cool down on a hot summer day. The Tart Cherry Sorbet requires no ice cream maker and contains no added sugar. I added star anise which is an unusual spice but it goes incredibly well with the tart cherries. Feel free to experiment with any other low-glycemic fruit and herbs.
