First of all, here’s a link to the recipe. Don’t forget to come back!
My changes (sans tequila): I did not use an ice cream maker. Instead I poured the strained liquid into a metal container, covered, and left it in the freezer over night. Next day (or when frozen), I scraped the surface with a fork to make icicles and served.
I did mention in my last postthat I would add Beetroot Infused Vodka… I tried it and it’s not a good idea taste-wise!
Now go out and get some rhubarb and make this granita, it’s so easy, and you won’t be disappointed!
With Mia’s help, I picked some rhubarb last weekend… first harvest from the plot in 2013! Looks like I will have a good, possibly great, rhubarb crop this year. With so much rhubarb on the way (fingers crossed), I expect to be experimenting a lot. First experiment, already completed, is the rhubarb drink pictured below, worth it for the colour alone. Next up is a Rhubarb Granita with a dash of beetroot infused vodka… sorry Mia, that’s for the grown-ups only!
I managed to plant a few ‘first early’ potato seeds yesterday of the Red Duke of York variety. It felt good to get my first potatoes in the ground. I have a few more varieties to plant over the next while. Another ‘first early’ variety, the Pentland Javelin, should go in this week if it’s not too frosty!
…neither up nor down.
