Season fruit makes delicious granita.

Paying homage to the season, Antonella Rana, co-owner of Rana Pastificio in NYC's Meatpacking District, wanted to showcase this coveted summer ingredient in her native Italy.

"Late summertime in Italy means watermelon everywhere — fresh watermelon on street carts, candied watermelon skewers on the beach," she says. "Here at Giovanni Rana Pastificio & Cucina, we wanted to make the simplest of ingredients even more refreshing, and our watermelon granita does just that. The easy, no-bake recipe makes for the perfect summer dessert!"
