Minty Iced Green Tea and Peach Granita
Brew the tea according to package instructions, adding 1 whole sprig of mint while brewing. Meanwhile, place the peaches in boiling water for 30 seconds then place them in ice water. Peel the peaches and slice them into wedges or chunks. They will be pureed so don’t worry about size or shape. Chop the leaves from the remaining mint sprigs and place into a blender or food processor with the peaches and half of the brewed iced tea. Puree until the peaches are mostly smooth. Pour into a 9 ½ x 11 glass pyrex baking dish and place in the freezer. After 1 hour scrape at the mixture with the tines of a fork and place back into the freezer for another hour. When ready to serve, scrape the mixture with the tines of a fork to create Minty Iced Green Tea and Peach shavings. Scoop ½ cup into serving bowls and serve immediately.
