|Granita is light, low-calorie and crunchier than sorbet. You don’t use an ice cream maker; instead, the ice crystals form in a pan in the freezer and are broken up every few hours.
This recipe uses Texas Rio Star Grapefruit, grown in the Rio Grande Valley in southernmost Texas. They are more red in color than Ruby Red grapefruit, so have a more lovely color. If you can’t obtain them, you can substitute other red or pink grapefruit, but they may not have the same sweetness.
Makes 4 half-cup servings.
-3 Texas Rio Star Grapefruit, juiced
1. Combine grapefruit juice and sugar and bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves.
