    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.
