    Default Homemade Italian Ice..My family love these..

    lemon flavored:
    2 cups water
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup lemon juice

    For orange flavored:
    2 cups water
    3/4 cup sugar
    1 cup orange juice

    For coffee flavored:
    1 cup water
    1/2 cup sugar
    2 cups extra strong espresso coffee

    For cappuccino flavored:
    1 cup water
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 1/2 cups extra strong espresso coffee
    1/2 cup non-fat milk

    For strawberry flavored:
    1 cup water
    1/2 cup sugar
    2 cups fresh strawberries, pureed in an electric
    blender or food processor *
    2 tablespoons lemon juice

    * (If using frozen strawberries, reduce the amount
    of sugar to 1/4 cup)

    Combine the water and sugar in a saucepan and bring
    to a boil over high heat, stirring just until the sugar is
    dissolved. Boil uncovered for exactly 5 minutes, remove
    from the heat immediately, and allow to cool to room
    temperature.

    Add the remaining ingredients, stir, and pour into a
    metal pan, such as a cake pan. Freeze for 3 to 4 hours,
    stirring every 30 minutes with a fork and scraping the ice
    crystals that form around the edge of the pan. When
    finished, the granita should have a fine, crumbly texture,
    like coarse snow. For a coarser texture that is preferred
    by some, freeze the liquid in ice cube trays, and then crush
    the cubes in an ice crusher or food processor immediately
    prior to serving. Each recipe makes about 3 cups.


    Enjoy..
