1/3 Photos of Coffee Granita a La Orange
A granita is, essentially, an Italian ice, coffee flavored, in this particular case. On the richness scale, it’s on the opposite end of the spectrum from ice cream since it contains no eggs or cream. A bit of sugar, yes, but in modest proportion. The method for making a granita is decidedly low tech: you simply stir the liquid periodically as it freezes, resulting in the granita’s granular texture; the word, by the way, comes from the Italian grana, meaning grainy. I like to serve this as is, in small chilled bowls or cups, but it is frequently served with a dab of lightly sweetened whipped cream. Put a plate of biscotti on the table, fresh hot coffee too, and you have the perfect dessert.
