A delightful, sweet-tart frozen confection that makes the perfect, refreshing dessert after a heavy meal.
1 (12-ounce) package fresh or frozen cranberries
2 cups water
1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
1 cup orange juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
- In a saucepan, bring cranberries and water to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 5 minutes. Press through a strainer to remove skins; discard skins.
- To the juice, add sugar, orange juice, lemon juice and orange peel; stir until the sugar has dissolved. Pour into an 8-inch square pan. Cover and freeze until ice begins to form around the edges of the pan, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours and stir.
- Freeze until mushy, about 30 minutes. Spoon into a freezer container; cover and freeze.
- Remove from the freezer 20 minutes before serving. Scoop into dessert dishes and serve.
