U Need Granita?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Brief but meaningful. Take unloved fruit (melon, pineapple, citrus, stone), purée with 2-3 tablespoons sugar, add a shot of citrus. Taste, adjust.Park in the freezer in shallow dish. Scrape with a fork, from the outside towards the center every 30 minutes for a couple of hours.

Voila, granita!


FYI if it freezes too hard, let it sit counter top for 15 minutes. Then scrape again.

Done, delicious, FAT FREE! B

  1. I’ve never made an apple granita, but sauce is fab! Cobbler too! OR Carmelize sugar with a touch of water to get it started, add sliced peeled apples, and a touch of butter or cream and vanilla. Spoon it over ice cream.
