[MUSIC] Restaurants serve oysters with granita all the time. They
make it sound so fancy, and they charge you an
arm and a leg for it. Anyone can do it,
it's super easy, and you can make granita out of
anything. You just start with any beverage you love. Wine,
beer, grape juice, whatever, You add a speck of salt
and pepper to season it. Maybe a little bit of
lemon or vinegar just to get it a little more
acidic. And you put it in a tray and you
freeze it. Sometimes it takes a few hours, maybe overnight
depending on your freezer. Whenever you're ready to serve oysters,
you just take a fork, scrape the top of it.
Look how easy. So you get this nice Beautiful snowy
ice. [MUSIC] Toss it right on top of oysters in
the half shell. Put it in a salad, or eat
a big bowl of it. It's super good, super easy.
My favorite granita, super straight forward, grapefruit juice. And always
like it fresh. Sometimes a little bit of black pepper,
and a little bit of Olive oil even in it
is awesome. [MUSIC] [UNKNOWN] in general, I would feed it
to Ben after we're done shucking. Year, I don't know,
or maybe we just go for a walk and eat
it. Whatever. [LAUGH] This [UNKNOWN] my arms.
