The more varieties of fruit you use, the better. Try other berries, kiwi fruit, or fresh peaches.

- 1½ cups sugar
- ⅔ cups water
- 1½ pints raspberries
- 2½ pints blackberries
- 1 cup blueberries
- ¼ cup lemon juice
- Mix the sugar and water together in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until all of the sugar is dissolved.
- Add the berries and cook for 6 minutes. Strain the liquid and add the lemon juice.
- Place in your freezer in ice trays. Occasionally break up the granita with a fork so that it does not turn into a block of ice. Or use an ice cream freezer to make your granita. The ice cream freezer will increase the shelf life of the granita, making it a sorbet. Soften slightly before serving.
