Melon & Apple Granita
This granita uses sweet ripe melon for flavor, apple juice instead of sugar and a touch of lime juice to perk up the flavors. Berries look beautiful on top; or if you can find fresh figs, add them. For a vibrant look, make with an orange-fleshed melon, such as cantaloupe, Charentais or orange honeydew.
Make Ahead Tip: Freeze for up to 1 week. Remove about 20 minutes before serving to soften slightly.
