tweetkids cookshop: slushy snow!

granita

It’s snowing yet again! So let’s make the most of it. After 24 hours of beautifully thick, falling snowflakes, it was time to play, but this time indoors!

The slushy snow recipe is super fast and easy to make with just 3 ingredients: snow, lemon and sugar. Quantities can be adjusted to taste.

After collecting a good bowlful of clean snow, we were ready to add some white sugar and squeeze the juice of 4 lemons to give the slush a ‘kick’ and create a fantastic icy bomb of flavour. The next step is to bash the snow and mix in the other ingredients to create slush. The effect, and taste, is very similar to Granita (in Italian also granita siciliana) a semi-frozen dessert made from sugar, water and various flavourings. This time we used lemon, but with more snow forecast, we look forward to trying other flavoured snow.

We love slushy snow! Erica, Arianna, Lorenzo, Gabriele, Giulia, Sara, Viola and Ruben
