Cranberry Ice


  • 3 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 2 cups water
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice


  • 1. In a large saucepan, bring cranberries and water to a boil. Cook over medium heat until the berries pop, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat; cool slightly. Press mixture through a sieve or food mill, reserving juice and discarding skins and seeds.
  • 2. In a small bowl, sprinkle gelatin over cold water; set aside. In a saucepan, combine cranberry mixture and sugar; cook and stir until sugar is dissolved and mixture just begins to boil. Remove from the heat. Stir in gelatin mixture, stirring until gelatin is dissolved. Add lemon juice.
  • 3. Transfer to a shallow 1-qt. freezer container. Cover and freeze until ice begins to form around the edges of container, about 1 hour; stir mixture. Freeze until slushy, stirring occasionally.
