What is granita?
A question that does not need any presentation because everyone know the anwer. But if anyone was wondering what this is…well let’s try to explain it.
Let’s begin by saying that between all the different products offered by an ice cream shop, granita is something between a sorbet and a popsicle, being, in fact, composed by numerous microcrystals of ice. It’s not a case that granitas have beeen baptised for their cristalline structure, “granitous”
Ice crystals – a must for the granitas – have to be be super fine, capable to be felt on the taunge but that must melt easily in the mouth.
Granitas are different from ice creams and sorbets because of some structural aspects:
- No cremosity
- Granulous and crystallized look
- Semi-dense (almost semi-liquid) texture
These are the principals characterictics that tha a perfect granita must respect.
How did granita born?
If from a side everyone knows of what product we’re talking about, on the other noone knows the history of granita.
Its origins come from arabs and their Sherbet, an icy drink that tasted like fruit and roses, from which the sicilians added snow from Etna, of Peloritani and Nebrodi Mounts, that in summer was preserved in the “nivieras”, forerunners of modern cold stores.
The recipie was then perfectioned during the XVI sec. With th einvention of “pozzetto” (a wooden and zinc bucket, where snow and juice were mixed with a special crank to give the mixture more consistency) and above all of Broscia, earmarked since the beginnign to be the eternal compaign of granita.
At the beginning the flavours were strawberries, lemon and orange, but from the XVII sec. Came also almond, pistachio, chocolate, coffee and many others, ina continuous experimentation that goes on ‘til these days! As our offers.
