1 cup Simple Syrup (prepared)
Combine the syrup with the fruit puree. Place in an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s directions, or place the mixture in a plastic container, put the container in the freezer, and freeze, stirring every 10 minutes to break up the ice crystals, until completely frozen, about 1 hour. This method will be more similar to an Italian granita.
Simple Syrup is quite easy to make. In a medium saucepan, combine 1 cup of water and 1 cup of granulated sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring, until sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and let cool. Makes about 1 1/3 cups.
