Jamie’s Orange Ice – Garnished with Fresh Mint

summary: delicious orange ice, based on Jamie Schler’s recipe for Orange Mint Granità in her lovely just published cookbook “Orange Appeal: Savory and Sweet” that is now available for purchase;

Orange Granita There really is nothing more refreshing on a hot summer day than having a little bowl of sorbet, is there?

One of my favorite snacks when I was a kid was frozen fruit juice […] [I would hack] away at the frozen treat with the spoon and scooping up chunks and flakes, letting them melt on my tongue, icy cold and orangey.
 
– Jamie Schler, “Orange Mint Granita”, Orange Appeal, p196

We love Jamie’s granita! What a revelation. It’s so very refreshing. It was so wonderful that after the first time we made it, we went out immediately to get some peaches to try it with peaches instead of oranges (simply because peaches were in season at the time). Then we made it with blackberries donated to us by our brilliant neighbours. And after they tasted the ice, they brought over more blackberries so they could have more of Jamie’s blackberry ice.

As much as we love the ice with other fruits, it’s particularly delicious made with oranges. We will definitely want to make it Jamie’s original way with oranges many many times. (continue reading )
