Orange Granita Recipe

granita all’arancia

Preparation time : 20 minutes + 4 hours to freeze

Ingredients for 4 servings

  • water 1 cup (250 ml)
  • sugar 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp (75 g)
  • lemon juice 3 tbsp + 2 tsp (50 ml)
  • orange juice 2/3 cup (150 ml)
  • grated zest of oranges 2

Method :

  1. Carefully wash the oranges and grate the zest of both, being careful not to get any of the bitter white part. Then juice them, filtering the juice with a fine mesh strainer.
  2. Make a syrup by boiling the water and sugar for 4 to 5 minutes. Let it cool and combine it with the citrus juices and orange peel. Freeze the liquid for about 1 hour, until ice crystals start to form.
  3. Whisk it well and put it back in the freezer. Repeat this process at least 4 or 5 times. The granita is ready when the ice reaches a uniform consistency and granularity.
