Concord Grape Granita with Lime + Mint


  • Author: kelsey nixon

Ingredients

Scale
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 cups concord grape juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (from 2 to 3 limes)
  • Grated zest of 1 lime
  • 4 sprigs fresh mint
  • Fleur de sel, for garnish

 


Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan set over medium-high heat, combine the sugar, ½ cup of the grape juice, lime juice and zest, and mint sprigs. Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring, to dissolve the sugar, and cook for 3 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat. Let cool for about 20 minutes. 
  2. Remove the mint sprigs and stir in the remaining 1 ½ cups grape juice. Pour the mixture into a 9- by 13-inch glass baking dish. Put the dish into the freezer. Every 30 minutes, scrape the mixture with a fork to break up the ice crystals and to keep the granita light and fluffy. Continue scraping every 30 minutes for at least 2 hours until an icy slush has formed.
  3. Scrape the granita into glasses, sprinkle with a little fleur de sel, and serve.
