・Red shiso (perilla)・・・1 bunch (About 250g of leaves)
・Granulated sugar・・・330〜360g (Adjust the sweetness according to your preference while tasting.)
・Citric acid・・・30g[For decoration] ・Sprig of shiso・・・ For garnishing
1/For red shiso, remove the leaves from the stems and carefully wash them with plenty of water (not listed) in a large bowl. Then, let them dry in the shade for about an hour.
2/Put the listed quantity of water (1.5L) in a pan, add “１” and boil for 4-5 minutes. Carefully skim off any excess foam. When the color of red shiso seeps out into the water, strain the leaves with a colander.
3/Add citric acid and granulated sugar to the strained juice of “”２”” and stir until completely dissolved.
When the juice is completely cooled, pour the amount that you want to make into granité to a metal baking dish and place it in the freezer.
4/When it starts to freeze, scrape with a fork, mix it, and put it in the freezer again. Repeat this step several times, until it becomes chunks of crystalized ice. Serve it in a bowl and sprinkle the shiso. And it’s done!
