Blueberry Granita with gingerIt is  time. Time to switch from yogurt and fruit, cold cereal (oh please) to the best hot weather breakfast orGranita Magic Book Cover snack – granita. This one with blueberries and the zip of fresh grated ginger will make you feel so much better, I promise you. A fine Sicilian tradition usually associated with coffee, or pistachios, lemon or almonds, but this one is made with American blueberries. The others featured in this previous post are really good, but the blueberry ginger one by Nadia Roden in her book Granita Magic. is more than worth the minimal effort it takes to make it. If you have purchased the Blueberry Essence from France available at Simply Gourmand, add 1/4 teaspoon to your mix before freezing.
