Sherbets made in the refrigerator used to be common when I was growing up -- Here's an orange & cranberry combination made just that way! Preparation time does not include the time needed for the sherbet to freeze.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soften gelatin in 1/2 cup of cold water.
  2. In saucepan, combine cranberries, sugar, orange juice & 1 1/4 cups water, & bring to boil, cooking until cranberries pop.
  3. Add gelatin mixture to hot cranberries, & stir until completely dissolved.
  4. Remove from heat & cool.
  5. Pour cooled cranberry mixture, a little at a time, into blender & blend until smooth.
  6. Add cream, & continue blending until well mixed.
  7. Pour mixture into refrigerator tray, & freeze until slushy.
  8. Remove from tray & beat mixture at high speed until thick & creamy.
  9. Put back in refrigerator tray & freeze until firm.

Delicious and so refreshing! I used frozen cranberries as that was all I could find. I did cheat on step 6 and used my Cuisinart Ice Cream maker/frozen insert to finish this off in about 25 minutes instead of freezing in a tray. Will definitely make again, and thanks for a great recipe! Made for the Comfort Cafe.
