Strawberry Rosé Granita
(a slushy, fruity dessert)
Serves 8 to 12
What you need:
1/3 cup Savannah Bee Company® Orange Blossom Honey, or your favorite Savannah Bee Company® honey
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 pounds fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
2 cups rosé wine
½ cup water
Edible flowers for garnish (optional)
What to do:
1. Wash Up!
2. Macerate the Strawberries: Stir together the honey and lime juice in a large bowl. Add the strawberries and toss to coat well. Let the mixture stand for 15 minutes to allow the juices from the strawberries to release.
3. Puree the Strawberries: Combine the strawberries and juices, wine, and water in a blender. Puree until very smooth. Pour the liquid into a 9- x 13-inch metal baking pan. Cover with aluminum foil.
4. Freeze the Granita: Transfer the pan to the freezer. After 30 minutes, stir the mixture with a fork. Cover and freeze for 4 to 6 more hours, scraping every 1 to 2 hours as the mixture freezes to create fluffy crystals.
To Serve: Scoop the granita into serving glasses or bowls and garnish is edible flowers (optional). Serve immediately.
Pro Tip: Depending on what season it is, your strawberries may not be very sweet. Taste the pureed mixture before freezing and add additional honey if needed.
