Blueberry Sage Granita Recipe

Place all ingredients, except fresh sage leaves, into blender and blend until smooth.

Press mixture through fine sieve, into an 8 inch (20 cm) square baking dish (discard solids).

Cover and freeze, stirring and crushing lumps with fork ever 1/2 hour, for a total of three hours.  Stirring procedure is very important, to prevent mixture from freezing into a solid frozen lump.  Texture should be ice crystals.

Serve immediately in chilled wine glasses, garnish with fresh sage leaves.

Can be frozen covered for 3 days.  Place in refrigerator 30 minutes prior to serving.  Scrape with fork before serving.
