3-Ingredient Blood Orange Granita
Servings: 6 servings
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water
3 cups blood orange juice (freshly squeezed or bottled, see intro)
1. In a small pot, combine the sugar with the water and bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
2. Stir in the blood orange juice, then transfer the mixture to a medium shallow baking dish (like a cake pan or a casserole dish). Transfer to the freezer. For the easiest method, freeze it fully, undisturbed (you’ll scrape the mixture later to create small crystals), about 4 to 5 hours. For large crystals, stir the granita every 30 minutes to 1 hour as it freezes, about 2 hours total.
3. To serve, scrape the frozen granita with a fork, if frozen solid, then spoon the crystals into serving dishes. If you stirred it while freezing, just spoon it into serving dishes.
