Rate & Comment


  • 2 cups blood orange juice, strained, plus 1 teaspoons blood orange zest from about 14 blood oranges

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together blood orange juice, zest, cream, corn syrup, and sugar until sugar is completely dissolved. Stir in salt to taste. If blood oranges were not chilled, chill mixture in refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours until very cold.

  2. Churn mixture according to manufacturer's instructions. Serve immediately as soft serve or transfer to an airtight container and chill in freezer for at least 4 hours for a firmer texture.
