Rachel Yang and Seif Chirchi, chef-owners of Joule and Revel restaurants in Seattle, have taken a favorite Korean dessert—shaved ice with sweet syrup--and turned it into a ginger-flavored granita.

  • Yield: Serves 4
  • Total:30 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh ginger (unpeeled)
  • 3 or 4 apricots, sliced
  • 1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 small mint sprigs

Preparation

1. Bring 1 1/2 cups water and the sugar to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring to dissolve sugar. Remove syrup from heat.

2. Meanwhile, whirl ginger in a food processor to mince. Add 3/4 cup water and whirl about 1 minute to extract juice. Pour mixture into a fine strainer set over a bowl and press to extract liquid; discard ginger. Stir liquid into syrup, pour 1/2 cup of mixture into a small bowl, and pour the rest into a 9- by 13-in. pan. Let liquids cool. Chill the 1/2 cup ginger liquid, covered, until used.

3. Cover pan with foil and freeze until slushy at edges, about 2 hours. Stir well with a fork, breaking up any lumps, then freeze until solid, at least 3 hours.

4. Meanwhile, stir apricots into liquid in bowl, then chill at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours, stirring occasionally.

5. Scrape frozen mixture with a fork to make large flakes. Spoon ginger ice into bowls and drizzle each with some sweetened condensed milk. Drain apricots, then spoon over desserts. Garnish with mint sprigs.

Note:

Make ahead: For ginger syrup, up to 1 day, chilled. For flaked ginger ice, up to 1 week, frozen.
