READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Annacia

A wonderful ice (sorbet) for any time of the year. Cooling in the summer and gorgeous cranberry red for the winter holidays. You can't forget Valentines day either. Time is prep only, does not include chilling or freezing.

This was very refreshing. It was a little more tart than sweet, but it was still quite tasty and wonderful. I didn't strain the cranberries to remove the skins but instead pulsed the cooked berries in my food processor for about 30 seconds, and I'm glad I did that because it deepened the red color of the sorbet which I think made it more appealing. Thank you for sharing your recipe, Annacia. Made for Spring 2013 Pick-A-Chef.
