Orange Granita

Serves 4-6 Ingredients Method

1⁄2 pint of water

Thinly pared rind of three oranges

5oz of granulated sugar

1⁄2 pint of freshly squeezed Orange juice

Put the water into a pan with the pared rind. Bring to the boil. Simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and leave to infuse for one hour. Remove the Orange peel. Stir in the sugar over a gentle heat until it has dissolved. Bring to the boil and simmer for three minutes. Allow to cool. Stirl in the Orange juice. Pour into a shallow container. Freeze until slushy. Tip the barely frozen granite into a bowl and beat to break up the ice crystals. Return to the freezer until the granite starts to become firm once more. DO NOT allow it to become solid. Spoon it into chilled glasses to serve.
