This is a double recipe that will fill approx. a 9x13 freezer container.
Sprinkle- 2 tsp. unflavored gelatin, onto 1/4 cup cold water –set aside.
In large pan mix:
2 1/2 cups sugar
3 cups water
Bring to boil and simmer 5 minutes then add gelatin and stir until dissolved. Stir in:
1 cup orange juice
1 cup lemon juice (juice of 4 lemons)
1 quart cranberry puree*
Mix well and freeze at least until there is 1” frozen on all sides of the tray. Beat or whip until smooth. Freeze again until ready to serve- Mix with 7 up or Sprite to form a frappe type of drink.
*Cranberry Puree: 1 ½- 2 packages of cranberries rinsed and sorted, barely uncover with water, cook until soft. Let cool a little then put through a strainer to remove skins. I use a fruit and vegetable strainer that is used to make applesauce. Make about 8 cups puree.
