From “Radically Simple” by Rozanne Gold. If you don’t have an ice-cream maker, you can prepare this as a granita, by freezing the mixture and stirring it with a fork until slushy.
- Grated zest and juice of 3 large lemons
- Grated zest and juice of 2 large oranges
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 16 ounces jellied cranberry sauce
Combine the lemon zest, 1/2 cup lemon juice, orange zest and 1/2 cup orange juice in a medium saucepan. Add the sugar, vanilla and 2 1/2 cups water; bring to a boil. Spoon the cranberry sauce, in large pieces, into the saucepan. Bring to a boil and whisk until melted and smooth. Cool, then chill well. Freeze in an ice-cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Serves 8.
