Okay, everybody stop what you're doing. *insert record screech here* I found a recipe for a Woodchuck Cider-based sorbet. Yeah, ya heard. Anyone who knows me fairly well can tell you that I love Woodchuck. Love. It.
I originally stumbled across this recipe while perusing Pinterest. The recipe comes from Elle's New England Kitchen.
2 bottles Woodchuck Cider, ice cold (Whatever variety you prefer. I used Amber.)
2 tbs sugar
1 tbs lemon juice
In a medium bowl, whisk the cider, sugar, and lemon juice together. Keep whisking until the sugar is completely dissolved. Give it a taste and adjust the sweetness if necessary.
Unless you have been putsying around in the kitchen, your mixture should still be very cold. However, if you feel like it isn't cold enough, stick it back in the fridge for an hour or two before putting it in your ice cream maker.
However, if you've kept your eyes on the prize, go ahead and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions for your ice cream maker.
Easy as that!
This was really refreshing, and though perfect any time of year, would be amazing on a hot summer night. I can't wait to try this out with some of the other Woodchuck varieties (Pear, Raspberry, etc.), because I'm sure they will all be really tasty.
Don't forget that this sorbet contains alcohol! Enjoy!
