My wonderful husband surprised me for our 30th wedding anniversary with a trip to Italy this summer. Part of the time,we rented a home that included a cook,she was wonderful to share some of her recipes,this is one I really enjoyed. This is her original recipe,but I think when I make it I would omit the thyme,try both ways and see which way you like it. I wrote this recipe while watching her make the granita,these are approximate measurements as she did not measure.
