Ingredients

Instructions

  • Cut the honeydew melon into half, remove the seeds, remove the flesh from the peel and add it to a food processor.

  • Wash and cut an unwaxed lemon into chunks and remove the seeds - if there are any. Add them to the melon chunks and process until it reaches desired consistency. I tend to process mine until there are a few chunks of lemon left but you can process it until it is perfectly blended if you prefer smooth granitas.

  • Add the elderflower cordial and process for a few seconds until it is evenly combined. Pour it into a freezer friendly flat dish and place it in the freezer.

  • Set a timer to ring every 30 minutes for the next few hours. You need to do that because you need to sto stir your granita with a fork every once in a while so it doesn't freeze into a giant block of fruity ice.

Notes

*I tend to buy honey dew melons that are about 1 1/2 kg (3lb) in weight, they result in exactly the amount needed for this recipe.
** You can freeze your granita using an ice cream machine but that will result in a sorbet like consistency - which is wonderful but nothing like a granita.
