Stone fruit granite

Recipe by:Adrienne Garcia
Marché Restaurant, Menlo Park

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb. pluots (about 10; you can also use nectarines or peaches)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Sweetened whipped cream (optional)

Directions

Slice pluots in half and remove pits. Cut each half into 6 pieces and put them in a medium saucepan with water. Cover and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until tender. Remove from heat and stir in sugar.

Once mixture cools, purée it in a blender or food processor until very smooth. Then pour mixture into a flat container (or one that you can easily scrape out the mixture after it’s frozen) and put in freezer.

To serve, scrape granite with a fork and spoon into glasses. Garnish with slices peaches and pluots or any stone fruit that you like and a dollop of sweetened whipped cream.

Serves 2 to 4
