Cucumber Lime Granita

From Farm Where Life is Good

<p>We haven&#8217;t tried this one yet, but getting up the nerve. (You&#8217;ll need a good movie in the <span class="caps">DVD</span> player to keep you company while you scrape.) Probably will substitute maple syrup for the sugar. Yep, I think it is worth it.</p>
