We should have included this in our roundup of Street Fair Food, because it reminds us of the trademark Del's Frozen Lemonade we see at every outdoor festival and beach boardwalk in the Northeast. This one, though, you can make at home in about two hours.Of course, Del's Frozen Lemonade is usually pretty soft; this looks like it's scoopable. But something this light, icy, and tart sounds about as refreshing as it gets on a hot day. Plus, it's not just pure lemonade. There's a little fresh-squeezed orange juice, lemongrass, and honey in there—delicious.
The process is similar to the way you make a granita. You freeze the juice in a shallow pan and loosen it with a fork after about an hour or two. But instead of stopping there, you put the frozen juice in a food processor to get it extra smooth.
We actually think that could be a good tip for any granita. The effect looks almost like sorbet.
