Watermelon Granitta.

Hello everybody.

As I mentioned and I seriously mean it I’ll try to make as much as I can of granitta flavors this Summer.

Today’s pick is watermelon,upon my son’s advice which turned out a big add up to the recipe I added some cranberry juice, soooo yummy.

Ingredients and method :
# 4 cups of watermelon cubes.
# 1/2 cup of sugar.
# juice of half a lemon.
# 1/2 cup cranberry or berry juice ( optional)
# mix all ingredients in the blender.
# pour in a big metal pan.
# freeze for 1 hour then start scrapping edges every now and then till you get crystals or slushy mixture.

Enjoy this amazing world of iced desserts, I’m so sorry I didn’t know about it long time ago. One really live and learn.

Melon Granita.

Hello everybody.

Saw this recipe on Fatafeat cooking channel the other night, when I searched the net I found a big variety of recipes of the basic one but with many flavors either fruits or coffee.

First trial was with melons and it turned out really good,refreshing and light I even liked it more than ice cream, definitely a winner!

Ingredients and method :
# 1/2 cup sugar.
# 1/2 cup water.
# 10 ice cubes.
# 1 melon cut to chunks.
# 3 tablespoons lemon juice.

# dissolve sugar with water and boil for 3 minutes then add ice cubes,leave till they melt.
# in a blender mix syrup, melons, lemon juice all together.
# pour mixture in a big metal pan and put in freezer.
# after one hour begun scrapping edges and mix all together.
# keep doing this every now and then till you get a crystal or slushy mixture.
# Serve with fruits or alone.

Note: you can blend mixture a bit if it gets too hard next day.
