  • ½ cup sugar

Cooking Instructions

Mix the sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Add the fruit and allow to cool.

Purée in a food processor or with a stick blender. Pour into a shallow metal pan and freeze until half set (1–2 hours).

Stir with a fork to crush any lumps and break up the ice crystals, then return to the freezer until set (about an hour).

Break up again into small crystals and freeze for another hour before serving.

Cook’s tip: Granita melts quickly, so chill the glasses in the freezer until frosty.
