Mango and Apricot Granita Recipe:
The mango fever is still on and is going to stay on me as long as the last mango is available for the season, but yesterday I also picked up another beautiful summer fruit the apricots. Now since granitas have been on my mind for quite some time with those sweet juicy fruits at hand, today was the day when I finally nailed it. Granitas are absolutely simple to make and they remind me of the mango and orange sorbets we used to droll over when in school, indeed it was just essence, water and sugar frozen and packed in plastic tubes but were still a treat during summers all through my school days. It’s only when I grew up and went to those fancy restaurants that I realized my childhood fancy food was a substandard fake version of the gorgeous granitas or sorbets haven’t really been able to tell them apart. I know any gourmet would kill me having said that, but that’s my inexpert palate’s decision. Anyway, here’s the simple, fast and delicious recipe to my Mango and Apricot Granitas.
