Ruby Grapefruit Granita
A granita can be made from any kind of fruit juice of your liking and makes a refreshing dessert in any season. Including a bit of grapefruit pulp here makes this rendition burst with bright flavor.
- Serves: 6 persons
- 6medium ruby red grapefruits
- ½cup granulated sugar, or less to taste
- Orange flower water, for finishing (optional)
Step 1Halve the grapefruits crosswise, and squeeze juice into a large wide bowl, allowing any pulp to fall in. Use a teaspoon to pluck out any seed or pith in the bowl.
Step 2Whisk in sugar until completely dissolved. Pour mixture into a low baking dish to a depth of 1/2-inch. (A 9-by-13-inch baking dish will work.) Place the dish in the freezer for at least 4 hours or overnight, until frozen solid. The frozen mixture will look like packed snow.
Step 3Use a fork to smash the frozen mixture into rough chunks and transfer to 6 serving glasses. Place glasses in the freezer until serving time. If desired, add 1/2 teaspoon orange flower water per glass.
