This is great as a dessert for anyone that suffers from intolerances such as Dairy or gluten. Hell, it’s a great dessert anyway! There’s a plethora of flavour options; coffee, pink grapefruit, lemon & lime etc. We’re celebrating the Jamie Oliver Food Revolution Ambassador program’s 2nd Birthday with this one!
As we are in the prime of Blackberry season in the UK, here’s an almost free recipe that’s a perfect little treat.
Blend about 300g of freshly foraged blackberries with a dash of water and the juice of half a lemon.
Make a sugar syrup by heating 150g of sugar in 300ml of water until it dissolves. Strain the blackberry juice and mix it with the sugar syrup in a metal tray.
Pop the tray in the freezer and then simply run a fork through it every 30 minutes until you have a crystalline consistency.
You can store the granita in Tupperware in the freezer for ages and dip into it whenever you need an autumnal fix.
