Sweet and Tangy Frozen Yogurt Sundae
- 1 pound frozen cherries
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 1/4 teaspoon lemon zest
- 1 pint store-bought frozen yogurt
- Candied ginger, recipe follows, for garnish
- 1 cup water
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup peeled and thinly sliced ginger
Cook until reduced and the liquid is slightly syrupy, about for 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in the lemon zest and remove from the heat. Scoop the frozen yogurt into 4 serving dishes and top with the syrup. Garnish with candied ginger and serve.
Line a cookie tray with parchment paper.
Combine 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and add the ginger. Cook for about 5 minutes, then remove the ginger to the cookie tray. While hot, add 1/4 cup of the sugar and toss together. Separate the ginger slices and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup sugar. Cool before using.
