Apple-Cranberry Kissel with Sweet Sour Cream
- 5 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and chopped
- 2 cups cranberry juice
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 3 tablespoons potato starch
- 1 cup cold water
- 1 1/2 cups sour cream
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- 8 to 10 gingersnaps, crushed
Add the apples, cranberry juice, sugar and cinnamon to a saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until the apples are very soft, about 10 minutes. Dissolve the potato starch in 1 cup cold water. Pour this slurry into the hot apple mixture, stirring constantly. Continue stirring until the kissel starts to bubble again, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and pour into individual dessert dishes. Allow them to cool then refrigerate them for at least 2 hours.
In a small bowl mix the sour cream with the brown sugar and lemon juice. To serve, put a good dollop of the sweet sour cream on top of the kissel and swirl it in with a spoon. Garnish with the crushed gingersnaps.
