Blood Orange Granita

Submitted by: Jen Conrad

A refreshing summer palate cleanser

Prep Time: Cook time: 30 min. Chill time: 6-8 hours
Serving Size: 6 to 8
  • 8 c. hot water
  • 3 tbsp. blood orange tea
  • 2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. fresh squeezed lemon and orange juice (1 each lemon and orange)
  • grated peel from lemon and orange
Brew tea in hot water. Steep 5 min. Strain out leaves.
Add sugar to hot tea and stir until dissolved. Add the citrus juice and rind. Pour into 2 shallow pans. Put in freezer. Stir with a potato masher or a fork every 30-45 min. until entirely crystallized. It should have the texture of snow.
Put gently into containers in the freezer, quickly so it doesn't melt, and scoop out some on a hot summer's day and share with your friends.
