Mulled Wine and Cranberry Sorbet

This sorbet is always a great addition to our Nantucket Stroll Weekend menu. I love serving it alongside my Grandma Fern's hazelnut shortbreads, or her famous molasses cookies.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Combine the cranberries, red wine, 2 1/2 cups water, allspice, cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, orange zest, orange juice and vanilla bean in a saucepot. Cook over medium heat for 20 to 30 minutes. The cranberries will have become very soft and the liquid will be reduced by about 20-percent. 
  2. Strain the mixture through a sieve fine enough to catch the spices, pushing lightly to extract some of the cranberry pulp. Chill the sorbet mixture thoroughly and spin in an ice cream maker until frozen.
