This refreshing Granita uses our Peach White Balsamic Vinegar for outstanding flavor. Perfect summer treat!
- 2 C. water
- 1 lb. ripe peaches, unpeeled
- ⅓ C. sugar
- 3 T. The Olive Tap’s Peach White Balsamic Vinegar
- Drop of vanilla extract
Bring the water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add the peaches and sugar, and simmer gently 30 minutes. Allow the peaches to cool thoroughly in the liquid, and pass the contents of the pan through a fine-mesh strainer, scraping the solids to extract as much pulp as possible. Add the Peach Balsamic Vinegar and vanilla, and freeze 45 minutes to 1 hour, scraping the ice crystals that form around the edges into the center every 10 minutes with a spatula. The mixture should be of an even, grainy consistency when ready.
To serve, scoop the granita into chilled serving glasses and garnish with mint leaves.
