    Green Apple Ice

    Source of Recipe

    from Lisa2K at eG, adapted from Traci Des Jardins

    Recipe Introduction

    This is one of those things that is greater than the sum of it's parts. A simple 3 ingredient recipe has no business being this amazing. I used Granny Smith apples, as Lisa suggested, but she says that you could use any tart apple or even 2 cups of apple juice. I did add a tablespoon of Calvados - it adds a little flavor and prevents it from freezing too hard. I served it with Lisa's Figgy Apple-Mascarpone Tart with Apple Cider Caramel

    List of Ingredients

    6 Granny Smith apples
    1/2 c. to 3/4 c. simple syrup*
    4 T. lemon juice


    Juice the apples through a fruit juicer with the peels on. Add simple syrup and lemon juice to taste. Freeze, as directed in an ice cream maker.

    *To make simple syrup mix equal parts sugar and water (1/2 c. and 1/2 c. or 3/4 c. and 3/4 c. - I started with 3/4 c. and used slightly less than that) in a small saucepan and boil until the sugar has dissolved and the syrup is slightly thickened.

    Lisa's Notes: You can pour this into a shallow pan and freeze. After 30-40 minutes, scrape the ice to break up the frozen bits and make it slushy. Do this again after another 30-40 minutes and then freeze until ready to serve. You can also just freeze into a solid block and scrape it just before serving as you would a granita.

    Serves 6-8.
