I was a little disappointed. It is definitely appley, and very refreshing... but lacks that pretty green color. Next time I am adding a little food coloring! It couldn't be any easier to make, and is so light and refreshing.
Green Apple and Sparkling Cider Sorbet
4 Granny Smith apples
2 cups sparkling apple cider
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp lemon juice (to taste)
Quarter apples and remove seeds, cut into chunks. Combine apple cider, sugar, and water and bring to a boil. Add the apples and simmer for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and allow to steep while it returns to room temperature.
Press the liquid and apples through a strainer to extract the pulp and liquid, discard the peels. Add lemon juice to taste (I didn't need any as my apples were really tart). Chill.
Freeze according to your ice cream makers directions.I missed the pretty green color, so used a shell of that crunchy green apple for my serving bowl. I think they turned out pretty!
