Apple Tarragon Granita

  • Yield: 6 to 8 servings


  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup tarragon leaves (about 4 sprigs)
  • 3 cups apple juice
  • 4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • Fresh tarragon sprigs, for garnish


  • Place sugar, tarragon, apple juice, and lemon juice in a blender and blend until well combined and tarragon is finely chopped. Let mixture stand for 10 minutes and then pour into a 9-inch square metal baking pan. Freeze the mixture, stirring and crushing lumps with a fork every hour, until evenly frozen, about 4 hours.
  • To serve, scrape with a spoon into chilled dishes or martini glasses. Garnish with fresh tarragon sprigs.
