Dreaming of Summer

I can't take the snow anymore... over 60 inches in Boston so far this season - gross! Warmer weather can't come soon enough. While I'm dreaming of summer, I thought I'd post a recipe that I tried last summer but never got around to posting.

Peach Granita
6 ripe peaches, peeled
1 1/3c water
1/2c sugar

Slice the peaches in half and remove the pits. Cut into small chunks.
Cook peaches with 1c water in a medium saucepan over medium heat, covered, stirring occasionally, until soft and cooked through, about 10 minutes.
Remove from the heat and stir in sugar.
Let cool to room temperature.
Once cool, puree the mixture in a blender with the remaining 1/3c water until smooth.

Pour mixture into a dish and place in freezer for 1 hour. Check to see if it's freezing around the edges. Once freezing, stir the mixture with a fork, breaking up the frozen parts into smaller chunks and raking towards the center. Return to the freezer and check every 30 minutes, repeating the stirring process.
