Raspberry Granita

Serves 4

 
granita

Pretty and refreshing, this fruity granita is terrific, after any meal or as a cooling afternoon treat on a hot day.

  • 2 cups (8 oz/250 g) fresh raspberries
         or frozen unsweetened raspberries, thawed
  • 1-1/4 cups (10 fl oz/310 ml) water
  • 1/2 cup (4 oz/125 g) plus 2 tablespoons sugar

In a food processor fitted with a metal blade or in a blender, combine the raspberries, water and sugar. purée until smooth. Pour the purée through a coarse sieve set over a metal bowl to remove the seeds. Press firmly on the solids with a rubber spatula to extract as much liquid as possible; discard the solids.

Freeze the purée, whisking every 30 minutes, until semi-firm, about 3 hours. Cover and freeze without stirring until frozen solid, at least 8 hours or as long as 24 hours.

At least 1 hour before serving, place 4 martini glasses or wine glasses in the freezer.

To serve, using a fork, scrape the surface of the granita to form ice crystals. Scoop the crystals into the frozen glasses and serve immediately.
