Fresh Strawberry Granita

Granita is a semi-frozen dessert  made from sugar, water, and various flavorings. its texture varies from coarse to smooth, it is always different from the one of an ice cream which is creamier, and from the one of a sorbet, which is more compact; this makes granita distinct and unique.Common and traditional flavoring ingredients include lemon juice, mandarin oranges, jasmine, coffee,almonds, mint etc.

My version of Strawberry Granita is made with pureed Strawberries  freeze in a pan and scrape with a fork.

4 cups fresh strawberries

1/2 cup sugar

3/4 cup water
