Since I knew that wasnt going to be happening in my house, i figured i had to find something to do with this watermelon. So i decided upon a cool, delicious granita, as yesterday was extremely hot.
granitas are very simple to make.
Puree watermelon in blender.
- 5 c seedless watermelon chunks
- 1/2c sugar
- 2 tbsp lime juice
Stir sugar and lime juice into puree and stir about 2 minutes to make sure sugar dissolves.
pour into shallow baking dish and freeze 30 minutes. take it out and scrape the sides with a fork to get the snowcone like texture and put back in freezer.
repeat every 30 minutes for about 4 hours.
