A Cooking Experiment!

So, you know, all full-up on steak and butter-mashed spuds with caramelized shallots, I have decided to try out a new dessert. Coffee Granita!

Granita, for those who missed the memo, is essentially ice cream made sans ice cream maker.

It's milk, water, flavour, and you freeze it, and stir it every 30 minutes, and eventually you have a cross between ice milk and ice cream.

Mine is 3.5 cups dark french press coffee, 1 cup cream, 1 cup sugar, 1 oz dark chocolate, and a splash of salt. I just started it. Hopefully, by 10:30 I'll be enjoying it.

Whee! I loves a new cooking technique! If this works, well, I'm gonna be in trouble. I'll say one word only: Strawberries!

(Ooh, blueberries! MmM!)
