Lime Granita

3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon grated lime zest (1 lime)
3 cups water

In a small saucepan, combine sugar with 3 cups water.

Bring to a boil.

Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

Chill for 1 hour.

Stir in lime juice and zest.

Pour mixture into a shallow metal cake pan and freeze, crushing and stirring the lumps with a fork every 30 minutes for 2 to 3 hours, or until it has a slushy, granular texture.

Serve immediately.
