Print Recipe LEMON AND BASIL GRANITA
This is a lovely refreshing ice that we sometimes serve as a palate-cleansing pre-dessert in the restaurants. The pepperiness of the basil and freshness of the lemon work really well together. Granitas are great things to make at home because you don’t need an ice cream maker or have to worry about getting a smooth texture – the whole point of them is that they are granular. They are best made and eaten on the same day, though, or they can become blocks of ice.
