Wolfgang Puck’s Watermelon Granita Recipe

Granita (in Italian also granita siciliana) is a semi-frozen dessert made from sugar, water and various flavorings. Originally from Sicily,
although available all over Italy (but granita in Sicily is somewhat different from the rest of Italy), it is related to sorbet and italian ice. From Wolfgang Puck’s Facebook page-For hot-weather entertaining, or just summer snacking: Watermelon Granita. Granita is like an Italian snow cone, made by freezing fruit puree and scraping it into icy flakes. It’s easy and a healthy alternative to ice cream or overly sugary frozen sweets.
