Prepare the syrup.
Combine water and sugar in a saucepan, simmer on medium heat until sugar is totally dissolved.
Remove from heat and let cool. Prepare fruit puree.
Combine strawberries, agave and lemon juice in your blender and mix until smooth.
Add cooled syrup to strawberry mixture, and blend until combined.
Pour mixture in a 13x9-inch metal baking dish. Cover tightly with foil, and place in the freezer. Freeze for about 1/2 hour or until icy at the edges. Using a fork, scrape ice crystals from the hedges. Stir mixture well, breaking all icy chunks, and put back in the freezer. Repeat every half hour during 2 1/2 hours. Granita is ready when granular but still slushy. Scrape granita into bowls or ice goblets, and serve immediately.
Wine Pairing :
- cream sherry
- moscato dasti
Cream Sherry, Moscato d'Asti, and Port are my top picks for Granita. A common wine pairing rule is to make sure your wine is sweeter than your food. Delicate desserts go well with Moscato d'Asti, nutty desserts with cream sherry, and caramel or chocolate desserts pair well with port.
