Granita, Slight Return – er REDUX!

So taking as my inspiration Miss Macchiato’s post for the granita and the bag of limes I got from our CSA fruit box that I didn’t know what to do with, I decided to make a lime granita.  Look here for the original write-up, but I substituted lime juice for the strawberry puree, and lime zest for the lemon zest, because again that’s what I had.

The result was very light and refreshing and sour as all get out because the limes turned out to be from the Florida Keys part of Wisconsin.  MAN those things had a punch to them.  It would have been great with some tequila on top, too.

Here is my 9 year old daughter with the finished product:

What will the next granita creation be?  Mixed berries thrown in a juicer?  Iced tea granita?  Sorrel?  HAM??!???
