Let sit for 4 minutes, then strain into a large bowl, Stir in the lemon juice. Place in the fridge to cool completely before freezing. Once cool, this ambrosial liquid can be made into one of three things:Sorbet: pour into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s directions.Gourmet popsicles: pour into a Popsicle mold and freeze.Granita: pour into one or more shallow containers and freeze for four hours, stirring with a fork every 30 minutes to make sure the ice crystals have a uniform texture.
