Cranberry Ice Cream

Cranberry Ice Cream 

1 Pkg Fresh Cranberries
1 Cup Water
1 Lg Pasturized Eggs
1½ Tbsp Swerve or Truvia
¼ tsp Xanthan Gum

1 Tbsp +
1 tsp

Vegetable Glycerin
  Important note: Be sure to get a USP certified Food Grade glycerin. Some glycerins are TOXIC and should not be consumed.
1 big pinch Salt
22 drops Liquid Sucralose
2¼ Cups Heavy Cream

Rinse and sort cranberries removing any that are soft or discolored. Put good cranberries in a pot and bring to a boil over high heat. When berries start to pop, turn down heat to medium and let simmer for 10 minutes.

Carefully press hot cranberry mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl. This will make a cranberry gel. Chill the cranberry gel. You'll only need 6 tablespoons of it later.

Beat eggs with hand mixer on highest speed until light and fluffy. Mix Swerve or Truvia and Xanthan Gum together. Sprinkle into eggs while beating on highest speed. Eggs will thicken slightly. Add salt, 6 tablespoons cranberry gel and liquid sucralose.

Freeze in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions.

Makes about 1 quart ice cream. Recipe can be halved to make pints
