I had never tried apple granita, and now I'm so glad I did! So nice and cool and refreshing with just the right amount of sweetness! Thanks so much Celticevergreen! Made for ZWT4!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix apple juice and mint leaves and allow to combine overnight in refrigerator. Strain mint leaves out of apple juice.
  2. Place a shallow metal pan in freezer. In a nonreactive saucepan, combine applesauce, mint flavored apple juice, sugar, lemon juice and salt. Bring to a boil, then simmer uncovered about 20 minutes.
  3. Cool to room temperature.
  4. Pour apple mixture into chilled pan; return to freezer. Stir every 20 minutes until it thickens into coarse crystals, about 1 hour.
  5. Stir granita and mound into small cups. Serve immediately.
