Holidays offer the perfect reason to share good food, and this Lethin family recipe is one of our favorite treats! Either Andrew or Doug pitch in to make this MUST-HAVE dish every year. One time we didn’t have the amount of cranberries the recipe called for, so they added blueberries to make up the difference. As it turns out, we love it that way, and add the blueberries every time.
We think this recipe is so delicious that you’ll want to make enough to have leftovers!
4 cups of berries—cranberries or blueberry/cranberry mix
2 cups sugar
5 ½ cups water
Put in kettle, bring to a boil and then lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring to dissolve sugar.
Cool and strain through a sieve or food mill.
½ cup orange juice
¼ cup lemon juice
Pour into loaf pan and freeze.
Set out about 20 minutes before serving. Using an ice cream scoop, spoon into dishes.
