Watermelon Granita



  1. Place watermelon chunks in a blender and puree until smooth. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl. You should have 2 cups of puree.
  2. In a small saucepan over high heat, combine water and sugar. Heat stirring constantly until sugar dissolves.
  3. Add the sugar syrup and lemon juice to watermelon puree and stir to combine.
  4. Pour mixture into a 13×9-inch glass baking dish or other shallow container and place in the freezer.
  5. After about 1 hour, when mixture starts to get icy around the edges, use a spoon to stir and break up ice crystals. Return to freezer.
  6. Freeze 2-2 1/2 hours longer, stirring occasionally until mixture forms fine, firm icy flakes.

Servings: 6
