Strawberry Granitas



Ingredients

  • 1 pound hulled strawberries or raspberries, plus more for serving

  • 3/4 cup apple juice

  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar

  • Pinch of fine-grain sea salt

Directions

  1. Combine strawberries, juice, sugar and salt in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into an 8-inch-square metal pan and cover with plastic wrap, making sure the plastic touches the surface of the mixture.

  2. Place the pan on a level spot in the freezer and freeze for at least 12 hours and up to one day.

  3. To serve, scrape the surface with a fork to break into slushy crystals. Serve in chilled glasses with strawberries, if desired.

  4. The granita can be made three days ahead. Cover tightly with foil; keep frozen. Give it a quick scrape before serving. The recipe makes 6 servings at 1/2 cup each.

Makes 6 servings.
