    Molly53's Note:

    A lovely Italian-inspired summertime treat. Very small scoops would make an excellent palate freshener between dinner courses. A dry Riesling balances the sweet liqueur, but according to your taste you may substitute other fruity wines, ranging from a dry Gewurztraminer to a sweet dessert wine or port. Cooking time is approximate freezing time.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix water, 1 cup of the wine and the sugar in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil.
    2. 2
      Add pears, lower the heat to simmer and cook the pears gently, about 10 minutes. Let cool slightly in cooking liquid.
    3. 3
      Drain the pears, reserving the cooking liquid.
    4. 4
      Puree the pears in a food processor until smooth (you should have 1 cup of pear puree).
    5. 5
      Transfer to a mixing bowl and add the cooking liquid, the remaining wine and the limoncello to the bowl; mix well.
    6. 6
      Pour into a shallow metal pan that will fit into the freezer and freeze.
    7. 7
      Gently stir the granita every 20 minutes or until frozen to allow the mixture to freeze without separating and give the proper crystalline texture.
    8. 8
      Once the granita is frozen, scrape the mixture with a spoon or ice-cream scoop into a pretty glass and serve immediately.
    9. 9
      Garnish with lemon zest or a sprig of mint.
