We've accidentally bought way too many strawberries. I bought a kilo and then Husband went and bought another half kilo. So to get it used up I thought I should make some sorbet/granita and that way Shorty can have some too, as she's allergic to milk and can't have ice cream.
This is half a kilo of strawberries, pureed and pressed through a sieve and then mixed with a cup of powdered sugar dissolved into a cup of water and a healthy splashing of lemon juice to taste - I like it rather lemony. All mixed together and then given a good whisk to make it all frothy. Frothy because I thought it would be fun that way.
Put into freezer container and freeze for three hours. Pull it out every three hours and bash it up with a potato masher to break up ice crystals and keep the texture smooth. The froth really helps with this. Tasted amazing.
