Recipe review: Melon with Basil-Lime Granita


Melon with Basil-Lime Granita is a perfect summer dessert, light and refreshing.  Blend a simple sugar syrup, basil, lime juice, and freeze, scraping every 30 minutes to get a slushy ice texture for the granita.  Then serve it on top of canteloupe and honeydew macerated in a little bit of sugar.  To go over the top, serve with a delicious, not-too-sweet cornmeal cookie.  A definite hit dessert.  Recipes from the dearly departed Gourmet magazine.
