Karen Hatfield serves this at her LA restaurant, Odys & Penelope. Find dried hibiscus flowers at specialty markets, Latin markets, and health food stores. You can subsitute grenadine syrup to good effect, but Hatfield asserts that hibiscus syrup best complements the fruit in this dish. Scraping the granita until it’s snowlike and fluffy is key to the textural pleasure here.

  • 1/4 cup dried hibiscus flowers

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine watermelon and 1/4 cup sugar in a large bowl; toss well. Let stand 15 minutes. Place watermelon mixture in a blender, in batches if needed; blend until smooth. Pour puree through a fine-mesh strainer into a 13- x 9-inch glass or ceramic baking dish; discard solids. Place watermelon mixture in freezer for 45 minutes. Scrape with a fork, and stir; return to freezer. Repeat procedure every 30 minutes until granita is completely frozen.

Step 2

Combine flowers, 1/4 cup water, and remaining 3 tablespoons sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil; simmer 3 minutes or until syrup just coats a spoon, stirring well. Strain syrup through a fine-mesh strainer into a small bowl; discard solids.

Step 3

Place 1/4 cup yogurt in each of 8 chilled parfait glasses. Top each serving with 1/4 cup strawberries. Drizzle about 1 teaspoon hibiscus syrup over strawberries. Scrape and fluff granita with a fork; top each serving with 1/2 cup granita. Top servings evenly with basil. Serve immediately.
