  • Servings



  • cups fresh apple cider

  • cups sugar

  • 1

    teaspoon whole cloves

  • 5

    whole cinnamon sticks

  • cups unsweetened applesauce

  • ¾

    cups cranberry juice cocktail (make sure it's 100% juice)

  • Juice of 1 lemon

  • 2

    tablespoons dark rum or other alcohol


Stir together apple cider, sugar, cloves and cinnamon sticks in saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat , stirring occasionally. Simmer for about 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Remove cloves and cinnamon sticks with a slotted spoon; discard. Whisk in applesauce, cranberry and lemon juices and rum. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Freeze as directed in the instructions for your particular ice cream maker. (We find that we get the best texture when we freeze for a relatively short amount of time - about 15-20 minutes, or just until frozen. This seems to keep the texture silkier. As always, leave to harden in the freezer for at least four hours before serving.)
