Author Notes

On a hot summer day, nothing beats the frozen crunch of blueberry juice and lemon. After all, granita is the grown-up version of the snow cone. With its Sicilian roots, granita hosts larger ice crystals than sorbet or gelato; the result of turning the mixture by hand, not machine. —Bow Hill Blueberries
