One of my favorite ways to cool down in the Summer is with this lemony tasty treat!  I hope you enjoy as much as I do!!

Sicilian Lemon Granita
Serves 6
3 lemons
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
Zest the lemons by using a vegetable peeler to peel the skin off in large pieces.  Juice the lemons and set aside.
In a small covered saucepan, heat the water and sugar until it has dissolved. You’ll want to stir frequently.
When the sugar is dissolved, remove from the heat, add the lemon zest, and place the lid back on.  Let stand until the liquid comes to room temp.
Carefully discard the lemon zest and stir in the lemon juice.  Transfer to a metal bowl and place uncovered in the freezer.
With a fork, stir the mixture every 30 minutes for about 3-4 hours or until it becomes a firm slush.  Serve immediately and enjoy!
