Um, well, let's just say if you like Cosmos, you'll love this! 'Nuff said.
- 4C water
- 1.5C SUGAR (okay, it was a bit sweet, I might drop that to 1.25 sugar but my daughter liked it as is and thought it tart still)
- 2C fresh cranberries
- zest of 1 orange
- 1/2t cinnamon (I debated cinnamon or ginger but decided on the cinnamon)
- 2T Grand Marnier
Bring water, sugar, cranberries, zest and cinnamon to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes or until all the cranberries pop (you know, they actually remind me of popcorn popping). Pour through a sieve into a 1 quart container. Put in the fridge to chill (I chilled mine overnight).
Pour chilled cranberry concoction into an ice cream maker and process until frozen (mine took 20 - 30 minutes). Put into another 1qt (you might actually get a tad more than a qt), container and stick into the freezer overnight.
Voila! You know, for a fancy Thanksgiving dinner, this would make a pretty decent intermezzo.
Oh, and for my weight watcher peeps, 1/4C is 2 points plus.
