Green Apple-Sparkling Cider Sorbet

2m2t

We only had sparkling cider at holidays, or special occasions. Or at least that’s how I remember it. It always seemed like a such a special treat, with the green bottle that popped when you opened it. Even if we were drinking it out of juice glasses the bubbles gave it a grown-up, sophisticated feel. And it does taste good too, unlike some of those holiday traditions.

Even now it seems a little funny to have it when it’s not a holiday. And why bother opening a whole bottle for just one person? So a bottle I got on sale sat in the cupboard for a while until I found this recipe.

It turned out nice and appley, although boy howdy did it freeze solid! And I want to be able to scoop and eat right out of the freezer, so that was a bit of a minus.
