Method

  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a large jug, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Pour into a large shallow container and leave for 3 hrs. You may need to use 2 containers – the granita works best when the juice is only a few inches deep.
  2. Transfer to the freezer and freeze for 3-4 hrs. Every 30 mins, stir briefly with a fork to break up large ice crystals until frozen but still a little slushy. To serve, spoon the chunky crystals into 8 small glasses or bowls and finish with a slice of fresh orange.
