Peach-strawberry granita



Author Notes: This recipe uses simple, humble ingredients that combine to become something luscious and refreshing. Amina from PAPER/PLATES

Makes: 1 quart

Ingredients

  • 4 ripe peaches
  • 1/2 pound ripe strawberries
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • juice from half a lemon
  • sea salt, to taste

Directions

  1. Peel and chop fruit into bite-sized pieces.
  2. In a food processor, blend together all ingredients until no chunks remain. Pour through a fine mesh sieve into small baking pan (I use a 1 pound loaf man). Return any chunks to food processor and blend, then add to baking pan.
  3. Place baking pan, uncovered in freezer, for 2 1/2 hours. Every 45 minutes to 1 hour, remove pan from freezer and scrape over with a fork until frozen through.
  4. To serve, scrape frozen mixture to create an icy and fluffy texture and transfer to small bowls. To store, freeze in airtight container.
