A light and refreshing  "course" between main courses ....

3 Cucumbers about 1 3/4 pounds total.
2 Tablespoons lime juice, (about 1 lime)
2 Tablespoons superfine sugar
1/4 Teaspoon cracked Black Pepper
-- Pinch of Salt

Rinse and scrub cucumbers.
Peel two of them.
Leaving the Peel on the third on for color.
Trim the ends and slice cucumbers in half lengthwise.
Scoop out the seeds.
Cut flesh into 2-inch chunks.
Puree cucumber in a blender/food processor along with
1/4 cup water and the lime juice, sugar pepper, and
Chill completely.
Pour the mixtur into an ice-cream maker and freeze
according to manufacturer's directions.
Place granita in the freezer until firm enough to
'hold its shape' (like alot of US can't do)
Serve a 'small scoop' in a ramekin as a Palate
refresher between courses.
