 Cranberry Sorbet

Photo by:

With each icy bite, chunky bits of cranberries deliver a burst of tart flavor. Serve with favorite holiday cookies or biscotti.

Yield: Makes about 1 quart

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
  • ¼ cup fresh orange juice
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest

Directions

In a saucepan, combine the cranberries, orange juice, and ½ cup of the water. Cook over medium heat until cranberries pop open, 5 to 7 minutes. Coarsely mash the cranberries, still in the saucepan, with the back of a wooden spoon. (You should have about 1½ cups puree.)

Add the sugar, lemon juice, orange zest, and remaining water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.

Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring often, until a syrup forms, about 15 minutes.

Let cool and refrigerate for at least 6 hours, or as long as overnight.

Freeze in an ice-cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
