2 cups water
1 (12-ounce) package fresh cranberries
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary


Combine water and cranberries in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat; boil 8 to 10 minutes or until skins pop. Remove from heat. Process cranberries, in batches, in a food processor until coarsely pureed. Press pureed cranberries through a wire-mesh strainer into a bowl, discarding solids. Add sugar and remaining 4 ingredients to cranberry puree, stirring until sugar dissolves.

Divide cranberry sauce evenly among 6 (6-ounce) custard cups or ramekins. Cover and freeze until firm. Remove from freezer 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
