Apple Cider Granita

Fresh apple cider and apple brandy make a simple granita that’s the perfect ending to a fall meal.


  • 4 cups fresh apple cider
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup Calvados, or other apple brandy
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice


Step 1
Put a shallow metal pan in the freezer to chill. Combine cider, sugar, apple brandy and lemon juice in a bowl. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Pour the mixture into the chilled pan and place in the freezer. Every 30 minutes, stir with a fork, crushing any lumps, until the granita is firm but not frozen solid, about 3 hours.
Step 2
To serve, scoop into chilled bowls or goblets.
