Episode Summary

Last weekend while we were at Get Tough or Die Farms (Tanja’s Mom’s house), we were introduced to a new summer dessert. In Sacramento the mid-day temperature can get brutal by this time of year, and one day while we were all sitting outside sweltering, Melissa brought out a round of Watermelon Granitas for all of us. I was wowed, had two, and hinted for Tanja to use her familial leverage to get the scoop on the dish. This is surprisingly easy for a dessert that packs such a potent refreshment quotient, and with so little sweetener needed, it’s shockingly guilt-free as well.Watermelon Granitas:4 Cups watermelon, choppedJuice of 1 limePinch of sea salt1-2 Tbspns agave nectar, or to tasteMakes 4-6 servingsBlend all ingredients together until smooth, about 20 seconds. Pour into shallow pan and place in freezer 3-4 hours, stirring occasionally until frozen. To serve, scrape ice crystals with a spoon or fork into serving glass, garnish with mint leaves or basil.This site has a few fun granita recipes we’d like to try out soon. Consider substituting the sugar with agave syrup for a lower glycemic punch. A quick search for “granitas” will turn up many more recipes. If you find any winners, please do let us know!moreless
