Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Author: Gemma Stafford
  • 6 ½ cups (2lbs/907g) strawberries, (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/3 cup (2 ½ oz/71g) sugar
  • 1 cup (8floz/225 ml) water
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  1. If using fresh strawberries, wash and hull them.
  2. In a blender or food processor, blend strawberries, sugar, water, salt, and lemon juice until pureed.

  3. Pour mixture through a fine strainer into a 9x13 inch (23x33cm) metal baking pan and place in the freezer.
  4. Every hour, run a fork through the puree, scraping up the frozen bits from the edges and stirring to incorporate them with the still liquid mixture.
  5. After about 4 or 5 hours, the granita should be fully frozen in flakes. Cover and store for up to 3 days.
