       Title: LEMON GRANITA
  Categories: Desserts, Fruits, Ices, Malgieri
       Yield: 1 servings
  
       2 c  Water
       1 c  Sugar
   1 1/2 c  Freshly squeezed lemon juice
  
   PLACE A NON-REACTIVE roasting pan or gratin dish in the freezer. Bring
   sugar and water to a boil in a saucepan, stirring occasionally to
   dissolve sugar. Cool the syrup. Stir in the lemon juice and pour
   through a fine strainer to eliminate any seeds or pulp. Pour into the
   prepared pan and return to the freezer. When the mixture starts to
   freeze, stir every 10 minutes or so, scraping the frozen mixture from
   the bottom and sides of the pan and mixing it with the
   as-yet-unfrozen mixture. When there is no longer any unfrozen liquid
   in the pan, pack the granita into a chilled container and press
   plastic wrap against the surface. Serve within a few hours for best
   texture. If the granita freezes to a solid block, pop it out of the
   container and cut into thick slices with a stainless steel knife.
   Chop the slices finely, replace in the container and freeze until
   serving time. Serve the granita in chilled stem glasses. Substitute
   lime or grapefruit juice for distinctly different flavors.
