Peach Granitas

Peach Granitas

1/3 c sugar
½ c water
2 ½ cups very ripe peaches, pitted and chopped
2 T lemon juice

  1. Heat water in saucepan over medium heat, add sugar and stir to dissolve. Remove from heat.
  2. In food processor puree sugar/water mixture, peach and lemon juice. Taste to adjust sugar. It will taste a bit less sweet when frozen.
  3. Pour into shallow freeze-able container, cover, and place in freezer. Every few hours take out and scrape mixture with a fork to prevent it from freezing into a solid block. It is ready when all the liquid is frozen.
