I opened the bottle of your vanilla extract last weekend to bake some cookies and the difference in taste is extraordinary." – Judy

Cranberry Vanilla Sorbet




Cranberry Vanilla Sorbet



1 quart cranberries

13/4 cups water

1 Vanilla Bean, split lengthwise

13/4 cups sugar

1 cup cranberry juice

1 teaspoon Rain’s Choice pure Vanilla Extract (if not using the vanilla bean)


Cook cranberries in water with the vanilla bean until the cranberries are soft and begin to pop. Remove vanilla bean and set aside. Sieve the berries or run through a food processor then sieve out skins and seeds. Place back in saucepan and add sugar, juice, and vanilla bean. Cook for another five minutes. Remove from heat, add vanilla extract if you are not using a vanilla bean, and chill.

When you are ready to freeze the cranberry mixture, remove vanilla bean. The bean can be used again. Process in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions or, freeze in a shallow pan. When mixture is frozen, run through the food processor and freeze again until about 10 minutes before serving. Allow to soften enough to scoop into individual dishes. Garnish with mint leaves.

I was given a small bottle of Rain’s Choice in a gift basket and I have been hooked ever since. The flavor makes all of my baking so much better! I will never use grocery store vanilla again!
