Granitas are sort of an Italian icee. They are refreshing and very easy to make. They can be made from oranges, tangerines, lemons, peaches, watermelon, chocolate and coffee. Here is what you need to do for this:
2 cups grapefruit juice
1 cup water
1/3 to 1/2 cups sugar
3 pieces grapefruit rind with no white lining
Place the juice, water,sugar and rind in a small pot. Stir until sugar is melted. Bring to a boil. Turn off the heat and cool down.
Strain the juice into a 9×13 pyrex dish. Place in the freezer and freeze for 45 minutes. Remove from freezer and rake with a fork until small pieces of ice form. Return to the freezer for another 30 minutes. Repeat the raking process and the freezing four more times.
Serve your granita as is or topped with a berry coulis. Enjoy!
