Tuesdays at the Table - Strawberry & White Zinfandel Granita

Happy Tuesday!  The Boston area is officially having a heatwave...and I'm NOT liking it.  I'll be thrilled when the temps cool off and fall arrives.  In the meantime, there's no way I'm cooking anything substantial in my non-air conditioned kitchen after work.  In fact, this might be my dinner.  Don't judge...

Thanks to you lovelies that linked up a delicious recipe last week.  I hope you all come back again this week to share a recipe and maybe bring along a few foodie friends!

Strawberry & White Zinfandel Granita

2-1/2 pints raspberries (hulled)
1-1/4 cups sugar
1/4 cup water
1 (750 ml) bottle white Zinfandel

In a medium sauce pan, combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil, allowing sugar to dissolve. Take off heat and allow to cool to room temperature then transfer to a food processor and process until smooth. Stir in wine.

Pour out into shallow pan (I find that a 1 quart or larger Tupper Ware/Glad Ware container works well) and pop it into the freezer. Pull the container out every half hour and stir with a fork. Make sure to scrape the sides and bottom so everything freezes evenly.

Such an easy, yummy summer treat! *Remember, this is supposed to be grainy/full of ice crystals; like adult version of a stick-less Popsicle!*

What's cooking in your kitchen?
