Ingredients list for the tomato granita

Servings: 6

  • 2 1/2 pounds ripe tomatoes (about 8 medium), cored, seeded, chopped

Directions

1. Dissolve sugar in water in a bowl. Heat in the microwave for 1 minute, then allow the syrup to cool down for a few minutes. Meanwhile, puree the tomato flesh in a blender.

2. Combine syrup and tomato with lime juice until smooth. Transfer to a 11x7x2-inch glass or ceramic baking dish. Freeze until starting to set around the edges, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour. Continue to freeze, without stirring, until firm, about 2 more hours. Cover and keep frozen until serving.

3. Remove granita from freezer; let stand until soft enough to scrape with a fork, 20 to 30 minutes. Using the fork, scrape the tomato granita and divide among 6 glasses or ramekins. Garnish with basil leaves and add a drizzle of vodka on top (optional).
