Sweet Granita!

Last Fall, I picked up a Domino magazine to keep me occupied during our flight to Mexico. I flagged a recipe that looked delish and then forgot about it. I ran across it this week and...YUM! Hubby likes it too, which means it's a keeper.

Blackberry Granita
2 pints blackberries
2 cups water
1/2 cup sugar
1 lemon

Wash blackberries and puree in blender. Strain into larger bowl, discarding the seeds. In a small sauce pan heat 1 cup of water and the sugar until dissolved, and add to puree. Then add the juice of one lemon to the puree. Lastly, add 1 cup of cold water and stir. Transfer mixture to a shallow glass pan and place in freezer. Stir every 20-30 minutes with a fork until the mix freezes (about 2 hours). Spoon over ice cream. Serves 6-8.
