Grape Granita & Drink

Fruits occupy a major portion of my refrigerator...Whenever we see something fresh we end up bringing it home...thinking that it would be sweet and devoured by our son...and at the end its me and my hubby who has to finish it off as it would be extremely sour...last time we had brought some grapes which was like that and I had moved it to the inner part of fridge...last day when I was digging into  the refrigerator,  found some spoiled...ah Nooo... wrinkled grapes....I took them out to examine...Nothing had happened other than getting wrinkles..:)...So i was like what to do with them...throw or save....I was sure that I wont get any juice, nor could dry it for further use...so I decided to experiment...and the result is here :)




Amount of ingredients is approx. as I just took everything and made it...
Grapes-1 nd 1/2 cup
Water-1/2 cup
Sugar-1/4 cup(add more if needed)

Method Of Preparation:
1. Boil the grapes along with sugar and water for 5 mins.The grapes should open up, else boil till it does..Then remove from heat and allow to cool.
2. Squeeze the grapes. Separate the juice with a strainer. You will get a delicious drink.Serve chilled.




Method Of Preparation:
1. Pour the juice in a baking pan and freeze it for 3 hours.
2. Remove scrape the  frozen crystal using a fork continue to freeze, scraping every 30 minutes, until the mixture is totally frozen and granular, about 4 to 5  hours.
3. Scrape the granita into chilled bowls and serve.
