Melon Granita

A granita is a rustic but sophisticated frozen dessert that does not require an ice cream make.

5 cups cubed ripe melon like cantaloupe

1 cup apple juice

1/4 cup lemon juice

1 cup fresh blueberries

Fresh mint leaves, for garnish, optional


Combine melon, apple juice and lemon juice in a blender; puree until smooth. Pour the mixture into a 9-by-13-inch glass or metal pan.

Place the pan on a level surface in your freezer. Freeze, stirring and scraping with a fork every 30 minutes, moving the frozen edges in toward the slushy center and crushing any lumps, until the granita is firm but not frozen solid, 3 to 4 hours.

Remove from the freezer; use a metal spatula or large spoon to break up the frozen ice into small slivers. Pack into an airtight plastic container and freeze for at least 1 hour more.

Remove from the freezer about 20 minutes before serving to soften slightly. Use a large fork to scrape the granita into shallow bowls. Sprinkle blueberries over each portion and garnish with mint leaves, if desired.
