Granita

Definition: Granita

Granita
A grainy sweetened ice that's flavored with fruit puree, coffee, or wine. A granita is a traditional Italian dessert and can vary widely in texture based on its freezing method. Those produced in a gelato machine have fine ice crystals, while another technique that combines freezing and scraping will give you a coarser, crystalline texture. Still others have a slushy consistency and are served as drinks. For a simple, elegant finish, try topping a fresh fruit granita with orange or lemon zest.

I have a recipe for coffee granita that I need to try this summer. To my recollection all you do is mix the ingredients and put them in the freezer and stir and refreeze every half hour.
