About Me

I was a banker who pursued my passion in baking and turned it into a home-based business.I taught Home Economics (HELE) in The Learning Child in Ayala Alabang. I also was a community volunteer and taught arts and crafts and home economics to the children in Virlanie, a non-govt institution that care for streetchildren.

Lemon Granita

Nothing is more refreshing than a fresh lemon granita on a hot summer's day.

2 cups water
1/2 cup granulated sugar
grated zest 1 one lemon, scrubbed before grating
juice of 2 large lemons

Heat the water and sugar together over low heat until the sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Combine the lemon zest and juice with the sugar syrup. Place in a shallow container or freezer tray, and freeze until solid.

Plunge the bottom of the frozen container in very hot water for a few seconds. Turn the frozen mixture out, and chop it into large chunks.

Place the mixture in a blender or food processor and process until it forms small crystals. Spoon into serving glasses.  Serve.
