  • Working in 2 batches, puree cranberry mixture in a blender until smooth. Strain through a fine sieve into a bowl, pressing to extract juice; discard solids. Refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours. (You can also set the bowl in an ice-water bath to chill more quickly.)

  • Freeze mixture in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions. Transfer to an airtight container. Freeze for at least 1 hour before serving.

Cook's Notes

Storage: Sorbet can be frozen for up to 1 week.
