Apple Pie Granita

3 cups apple juice
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
pinch of ground allspice

In a saucepan, combine all of the ingredients and cook over low heat, stirring, until sugar has dissolved.

Pour into an 8-inch square glass baking dish.

Freeze until icy around the edges, about 1 hour.

Using a fork, scrape the icy shards into the center.

Continue to freeze, stirring occasionally, until slushy throughout, about 3 hours.

Scoop into bowls and serve. (Serves 8)
