From the kitchen of Stephanie Knewasser.  I found
this in the
Best Ever Italian Cookbook, then
changed it a bit.  It's a nice slushy drink to enjoy on
a hot day.  It's also heaven when you have a sore
throat.
In a small saucepan:
2 c water
1/2 c sugar
Stir over low heat until sugar is disolved.
Bring to a boil.
Remove from heat, cool.

Add:
1 1/4 c pureed strawberries
to cooled sugar water. Stir.
Pour into pyrex pie dish.
Freeze until firm.

Soak dish in warm water to loosen granita.
Invert on a large cutting board.
Using a sharp knife cut into chunks.
Put in food processor or blender until slushy.
"A sign of a beautiful person
is that they always see beauty in others."
