Sour Cherry Granita
I love fresh fruit desserts! Granitas are excellent because they keep the bursting, fresh flavor of fruit waiting patiently in the freezer until you are ready to enjoy it... plus, they're super easy! Notes in parentheses are specific ingredients I used; use whatever you have. This granita is a brilliant, permeating red and was inspired by a recipe in Saveur.
What you will need
5 cups sour cherries, stems and pits removed just before use (montmorency)
1 cup white vermouth (Dolin Blanc)
1 cup granulated sugar (organic cane)
