Red Raspberries – Top Washington Agricultural Crop

Granita is an Italian version of ice or sorbet, but with large, crunch crytals. It’s very easy and great for a simple dessert. We’ve given the traditional recipe an update by freezing the fruit blend in a zip top plastic bag instead of in a shallow pan. Just squeeze the bag several times during the freezing process to break up the large ice crystals.

According to the Washington Red Raspberry Commission:

Washington red raspberries are delicious and nutritious, packed full of ellagic acid, vitamins, antioxidants and fiber, and produced on some of the most beautiful farmland in the United States. Washington accounts for nearly 95 percent of the U.S. production of processed red raspberries, at about 70,000,000 pounds per year.
