8 tangelos 8 gold kiwi 8 cardamom pods 6 gold kiwi 1 cup caster sugar
Juice the tangelos. Strain the tangelo juice into a saucepan to remove all the seeds.
Crush the cardamom pods to release the flavours.
Put in on low to medium heat. Add the cardamom pods and slowly stir in the caster sugar.
Turn off the heat once the sugar has dissolved. Leave it to the side and allow it to cool.
Pour the mixture through a strainer to remove all the cardamom pods, into a baking dish and place it in the freezer.
After 2 hours, remove from the freezer and with a fork, scrape the frozen granita to make ice crystals.
Place it back in the freezer and repeat this process 2 hours later.
Leave the granita in the freezer overnight. Fruit Salad
Cut off the ends of the gold kiwi fruit and peel them.
Cut them into small cubes and place them into a small bowl.
Cut the passionfruit in half and scoop out the pulp and place in a separate bowl. Assembly
The best way to serve this is in glasses with stems.
Bring out the granita from the freezer and loosen up the icy crystals with a fork.
Place the kiwi fruit into the glass.
Place the passionfruit pulp on top of the kiwi fruit.
Place the granita on top of the fruit.
You can certainly replace the tangelos with
oranges of any kind. In fact, any citrus combination would work well. 1 cup of caster sugar will yield a fairly
sweet granita concoction. Decrease the amount should you prefer it to be less sweet. If you’d like to make an
adult version, add a shot or two of rum or port into the granita mixture.
