What a hot and sweaty afternoon it was yesterday here in Sydney! Not the kind of afternoon you feel like standing over a hot stove in.
But maybe, just maybe you would, in order to make this...
Orange Granita. YUM!
It is very simple (even an 8 year old can do it). Put 300ml OJ, zest of 1 orange, 50g caster sugar, 150ml water and 30ml of lemon juice in a saucepan. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer till sugar is dissolved. Let it cool. Pour it into a tray, whack it in the freezer and when it is just frozen, scrape up the yummy crystals with a fork and put into cups and EAT!!! It is so deliciously cool and refreshing.
And here is Ben who thought he would try a bit of cooking too.
Note to self - Ben can reach up on the bench now. Beware!
