Lemon Balm
Honey Sweetened Lemon Balm Granita | Cool Summer Time Treat
Recipe type: Dessert | Dairy Free
Serves: 8
  • 1 cup packed roughly chopped lemon balm herb leaves
  • ¼ cup honey (optional)
  • 4 cups water
  • The zest of 1 lemon
  • The juice of 1 lemon
  1. Place all ingredients in a medium pot. Bring to a boil and then turn the heat to low. Simmer gently covered for 5-8 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and allow the mixture to cool slightly.
  3. Strain the mixture through a fine sieve into a shallow baking dish. I used my 1.8L corning ware dish.
  4. Place the liquid filled dish into your freezer, allow it to freeze almost completely (a few hours) and then scrape the frozen liquid with your fork to create your granita texture.
  5. Store in an air tight container in the freezer.
