Orange Spring Glow

I just love Spring.
And i am getting so very excited because Easter is coming faster than i would have imagined. Blossoms are everywhere and it is so delicious to see the sun shining after months of desperate grey fog.

Anyway, today i feel like i am "montée sur ressort" [springy]. And wanted to play a little.

Can you guess what's on the picture???
UPDATE - as Chanelle guessed it is Orange Granita.

Orange Granita
What i did is so simple i am ashamed to pass on the recipe to you. But sometimes the simpler the better.

Orange granita
serves 6-8

250ml water
100g caster sugar
juice from 6 oranges or 400ml fresh orange juice
1 tbsp grated orange zest

Place the sugar and water in au saucepan and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
Mix in the orange juice abd zest and pour the mixture in a shallow and freeze for an hour.
Stir the mixture with a fork to break the ice and freeze for a further hour, mix every 20 minutes.
Repeat until completely set.
