In the Heat of the Summer: Cool Kosher Granitas

Everyone loves sno-cones, those paper cones of crushed ice with colored, (very) sugary syrup poured on top. No child’s party is complete today without a sno-cone machine! And I frequently see adults flocking to the counter and pretending their child needs two! That’s fine; they are so fun and refreshing on a hot summer’s day. But for those of you who wanted something slightly more sophisticated, the grown-up version – granitas – couldn’t be easier, not to mention better and fresher tasting (no offense to sno-cone purveyors intended). Try these recipes to impress your family and friends. Serve them for dessert on Shabbos lunch with some cookies [1] or on their own  in the middle of a hot afternoon.
