the few dwarf citrus trees we have in our backyard decided to all produce ripe fruit at the exact same time this year. fresh meyer lemons, mexican limes and pommelo with a little tangerine from farmer's market seems like the perfect way to bring a little summer sunshine onto your winter table for dessert. plus a granita is like eating flavored snow! use whatever citrus you have on hand and adjust the sugar depending on the sweetness of your juice.

Fresh Citrus Granita

4 cups water
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup meyer lemon juice
1/2 cup tangerine juice
1/4 cup pommelo juice
in a saucepan, bring water and sugar to a boil for 2 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. let cool completely and then stir in citrus juices. pour into a 9x9-inch pan and freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight. scrape with a fork to loosen and serve.

I'm so glad I happened upon your blog! Your photographs are lovely...and this granita sounds so refreshing. I only wish I had a backyard of citrus trees, or any trees, but most importantly, a backyard. :)
