I found this cool haiku by Michael J Falotico the other day:
A lemon tree is
where I sit to ponder life
as drops of juice fall.
Ahhh, lemons… This lemon granita would make for a refreshing dessert, but I served it as a palate cleanser at a dinner party we had a while ago. It worked extremely well to purify the taste buds of loads of garlic and onion. Although this granita is quite sour, children absolutely love it. Maybe it reminds them of sour worms?
Recipe from Yuppiechef
