Iced Cranberry Sauce

Yield 6 servings
For a refreshing twist on the classic cranberry condiment, try this slushy cranberry sauce. Serve it in little stemmed cordials or other tiny glasses. Make Ahead

Ingredients

  • 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

How to Make It

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Cranberry Spritzer: For a festive drink, thaw any unused portions of Iced Cranberry Sauce and mix with ginger ale or seltzer.
