Fabulous Freelancer Foodie Recipe: Cranberry Snow

Looking for a sweet, light dessert? This cranberry snow recipe is sure to impress!

Note: this is a variation of a recipe that appeared in the cookbook, American Family Cooking: The Best of Regional Recipes.


  • 2 cups of fresh cranberries
  • 4 cups of water
  • 1 ½ cups of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice


  1. Wash the cranberries and place them in a 3-quart saucepan with the water.
  2. Over high heat, bring the water to a boil.
  3. Reduce the heat, cover the saucepan, and allow the cranberries to simmer for 10-12 minutes, or until the cranberries can be mashed easily.
  4. Puree the cranberries and what remains of the water in a blender.
  5. Place the cranberry puree in a bowl and stir in the lemon juice and the sugar.
  6. Pour this mixture into ice trays (about two standard ones) and allow it to freeze for about 4 hours.
  7. Remove the cranberry ice cubes, and put them back into the blender, pulsing gently until it reaches a snow-like consistency. Serve the cranberry snow in dessert cups individually.
