Lemon Granita Recipe



Freshly squeezed juice of 8 lemons
3/4 cups of sugar
3/4 cups of water
3 tablespoons of grated lemon peel (zest – just the yellow part)


Combine the sugar and water in a bowl and stir until the sugar has completely dissolved. Stir the lemon juice and zest in. Pour into large pans or pyrex dishes and place in the freezer. After 20 minutes, take out of the freezer and, using a fork, scrape the bottom and stir the ice chips with the liquid. Freeze again. Repeat every 20 minutes until there is no liquid left, and use the fork to break it up into small chunks.
Serve in wine or parfait glasses.
