Java Plum Granita

INTRODUCTION

A recipe created during the Eat Local Maui Challenge with Project Locavore, this is made using 100% local ingredients. You will need honey that is liquid, not crystallized, at room temperature. This simple, easy, and sure to please recipe is like making your own shave ice.

INGREDIENTS

2 cups java plum juice

1/2 cup lime juice

1/4 cup honey

pinch of salt

STEP 1

Visit the hyperlink above to make Java plum juice. If you’ve previously made Java plum juice and froze it, then unthaw before making.

STEP 2

Mix all ingredients thoroughly. I love using black lava salt, but any salt will do and you can also skip this ingredient. It can be helpful to use a container with a sealed lid so you can shake the mix and incorporate all the honey, or just stir thoroughly until honey has dissolved.

STEP 3

Put mix into a shallow pan and place into freezer.

STEP 4

After 1 hour remove from freezer and begin scraping with a fork. Place back into freezer for roughly one more hour, and repeat the process, until all liquid is frozen and scraped into small flakes.

STEP 5

Serve immediately, or save for later.
