The Dish on Delish and it had this great giveaway and recipe for myJones/Jones Soda. So head on over and enter in the giveaway for the soda, and then head on over to myJones Soda or Jones Soda and order some soda for yourself and others for these holiday seasons. Then with some or all of your soda you can make some Granita for you and your kids with the recipe from The Dish on Delish.
"I wanted to do something a little different with the Jones Soda. I’m sure you have heard of a Granita- if you haven’t, it is a frozen dessert originally from Italy. Depending on the region it can be chunky or sorbet-like and usually consisits of fruit juice, sugar and water. (I have heard some people adding other ingredients as well to change the consistency). Well, Jones Soda actually works perfect because it already has the sugar included, pure cane sugar to be exact. You can be creative and blend up strawberries, blueberries or any other fruit. Mint is a nice touch too.
You place your ingredients in a 9×13 pan (make sure they are mixed) and place in the freezer. You want to check on it every so often, probably every half hour or so and scrape it with a fork. This is the fun part. If you have kids, this is the perfect job for them. Keep scraping the ice mixture with a fork every half hour until it is set – and the consistency you prefer." - The Dish on Delish
