Bing Cherry Granita

I've been buying cherries like crazy but no one in the house was really eating them anymore, so I tried a granita. I used Peggy Fallon's recipe as a base, but I used less sugar and more water.

about 1- 1 1/4 pounds Bing cherries
3/4 c sugar
1 1/2 c water
1 TB lemon juice

Boil cherries with water til soft, press through chinois or sieve. Freeze and stir/scrape periodically til frozen.

It still ended up quite sweet - I liked it quite a bit paired with a lime granita. It was also pretty good with the chocolate flakes - kind of like chocolate covered cherry.

Mmmm, cherries - I still have a freezer full - and I'm not parting with them anytime soon.

Well, maybe for the custard pie. :)
