Transcript:Apple IcesHi, I am Rachel Edelman for About.com Food. Today I am going to show you how to make homemade apple ices.
Apple Ice IngredientsFor this recipe, you will need:
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 cups of apple juice
- 2 tablespoons of lemon juice.
Make a Sugar SyrupFirst place a saucepan on the stove top over medium high heat. Pour in the sugar and water. Stir until the mixture comes to a gentle boil. Then turn the heat down to a simmer until the sugar dissolves. After about 3 minutes, and the syrup is slightly thickened, remove the saucepan from the heat and let it cool.
Mix the Apple and Lemon JuicePour the apple juice into a shallow pan or glass baking dish. Pour in the lemon juice and give it a stir.
Sweeten the Apple Ice MixtureMeasure out 3/4 of a cup of the sugar syrup. Pour it into the dish with the apple and lemon juice. Stir it again. If you prefer sweeter ices, add more sugar syrup.
Freeze the Apple IcePlace the glass dish in the freezer. After 20 minutes, remove the apple ice from the freezer. Break up the frozen bits and make slush. Place it back in the freezer and scrape again after another 30 minutes. Another method is to just leave the apple ice in the freezer overnight and scrape it from the solid block.
Collect a bowlful of scrapings for a cool treat. Enjoy!
