When going through my recipes, I found this one, which is one of my favorites for summer. It’s crisp and refreshing, and now that we’re in Florida I suspect we’ll be eating it often!
1 cup sugar
4 cups watermelon, seeded
1 cup water
½ tsp lime zest
juice of 1 lime
2 tbsp fresh mint
pinch sea salt
-Combine salt, water, and sugar in a saucepan and heat until sugar is completely dissolved. Let cool completely.
-Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
-Add to an ice cream maker as per manufacturer instructions.
-Alternately, you can put it in a rectangular pan about 1 inch deep. Place in freezer, and scrape with a fork every 2 hours until frozen entirely. This will make a granita, which has larger ice crystals with a texture more similar to a snow cone.
