  • 1 cup water

  • 2 cups unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon
  • 1 cup Muscat wine
  • 1 cup California Walnuts finely chopped, toasted
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • Directions

    1. In a small saucepan, over medium high heat, bring water and sugar to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
    2. In a bowl, whisk together applesauce, lemon juice, wine, cooled syrup, California Walnuts and ginger. Refrigerate until cold, about 4 hours.
    3. Spoon mixture into a shallow plastic container (metal will cause mixture to turn grey); freeze until almost firm, about 2 hours.
    4. Break into chunks and transfer to airtight container and freeze until firm, about 1 hour.
    5. Transfer to refrigerator for 30 minutes before serving.
