redcurrant and wine granita

Redcurrant and sweet wine granita

  • serves 4
  • Easy

Take advantage of the August glut of tart, fruity redcurrants to make this refreshing granita. The amount of sugar you need will depend on the sharpness of the redcurrants.



  • redcurrants 300g
  • caster sugar 100g, plus extra to taste
  • orange 1, zested and juiced
  • sweet dessert wine such as Muscat  1 glass


  • Step 1

    Put the redcurrants, sugar and orange juice and zest into a large pan with 100ml water. Cook gently for 5-10 minutes until the redcurrants have burst. 

  • Step 2

    Whizz in a food processor or blender then push through a sieve (taste and add a little more sugar if needed). Stir in the wine. Pour into a large baking dish and freeze for at least 4 hours. Serve in small glasses.
