Granita di Pantelleria

Granita di Pantelleria

Blackberry Granita

During a holiday in Pantelleria, a small island in the middle of the Mediterranean (between Sicily and Malta), I consumed a mulberry granite every day. Made by a local cook, this helped considerably to cool me down in the intense summer heat. Ripe, scented blackberries can be used in the same way, as indeed can strawberries, raspberries or other soft fruit.
