Orange granita with passion fruit

Place the sugar and 1 cup water in a medium saucepan over low heat and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add the orange juice and orange rind and stir to combine.


Pour the mixture into a shallow (11-by-17-inch) glass baking dish, cover with plastic wrap and place in the freezer for 1 hour.


After 1 hour, use a fork to rake the top of the granita. Return to the freezer for another hour. Repeat every hour for 3 to 4 hours or until set.


Top the granita with passion fruit and serve.
