cranberry ice cream

  • 2 cups cranberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice - you might not need this much.
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1.5 cups heavy cream
mix cranberries, lemon juice, sugar in pot.
boil.

mash the berries.
really let pop and get smushy.
simmer. 
only about 5 minutes.


basically, pretend you are making cranberry sauce, 
minus the cinnamon and orange. 
(although, orange could be delicious in this)



add milk.
puree.

stir in heavy cream.

put through a sieve.

chill.

put that business in the ice cream maker.

freeze.

eat.



ps. i will slowly try to add to my ice cream recipes here. 
and i think we should all pretend that i'm not a total loser-- 
maybe i got excited about the whole blogging thing 
(and the ice cream thing, obviously) 
and wrote up a whole bunch of recipes already. 
maybe i have 5 more recipes in reserve to post. 

such a loser.
