Ingredients

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup fresh tarragon leaves (from about 4 large sprigs)

3 cups apple juice

4 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

Directions

  1. Place the sugar and tarragon in a food processor or blender and pulse until the tarragon is finely ground and the sugar is green. Transfer the tarragon sugar to a medium bowl; add the apple juice and lemon juice and whisk to combine. Let the mixture stand for 10 minutes, stirring it occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Pour the mixture into a 9-inch-square nonreactive metal baking pan and place it in the freezer. Stir the mixture, pulling a fork back and forth through it, every 45 minutes or so for 4 hours, or until frozen. The mixture will become a fluffy, icy concoction.
  3. To serve the granita, spoon it into chilled dishes.
