Apple Sugar-Cinnamon Sorbet


Supergirl wanted to make sorbet and we had just come back from the grocery store with a bag full of granny smith apples so we decided to try our hand at making apple sorbet. It turned out great, and tasted just like apple pie filling.

What you need to get started


and one of these, while not necessary, certainly makes the process a lot more fun


we got ours from the coolest places in Ottawa (if you are a gadget geek)

Lee Valley Tools

As you can see Supergirl enjoyed using it to get the apples ready



It’s an appl-cordion! Everybody polka! haha

Cut the apple into chunks and put it in a pot. Cover them in apple juice and a cup of lemon juice


Boil the apples into they are soft and then strain them into a bowl


Pour the juice into a blender or food processor (and if you are silly like I was and use a metal bowl to strain the hot apple juice into, make sure to wear oven mitts as that bowl will be HOT!!!)


Scoop about half of the apples into the blender or food processor with the juice and process.



Supergirl likes to use the food processor but it always makes her jump when she pushes the button.

You should end up with something like this


Stick this in the fridge for about six hours to let it cool completely. While it is cooling you can make the cinnamon-sugar mix. In a bowl mix together sugar, cinnamon and vinegar. It will come together into a crumbly mix. Stick this in the fridge as well.


Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the ice cream maker and add the cinnamon-sugar mix in during the last ten minutes. It should end up like this


Pour it into a tupperware container and stick it in the freezer for a few hours to firm it up and then serve it up to your adoring friends and family who will reward you with moans of pleasure.
