Temperatures are rising and you’re looking for something cold. The lemon granita that you will make with your hands will surely compensate you. Besides known for its healing properties for decades, lemon helps boost your immune system, cleanses your stomach and is considered as a means of cleansing even for our blood.
1 cup water, 2/3 cup sugar, 2/3 cup lemon juice, 2 fresh thyme sprigs, 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest.
Tell me what to do:
In a small saucepan, bring water and sugar to a boil. Cook and stir until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat, stir in lemon juice and thyme. Transfer to an 8-in. square dish, cool to room temperature. Remove thyme sprigs. Freeze for 1 hour, stir with a fork. Freeze 2-3 hours longer or until completely frozen, stirring every 30 minutes. Garnish with lemon zest.
