Watermelon Granita

Another grocery store mishap! Have you ever bought a melon that was less flavorful than anticipated? Well, here is my easy way to use it and not waste your money by throwing it away.

6 cups of pureed melon (blender, food processor, food mill will all work)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon lemon or lime juice

make a simple syrup by heating the sugar and water in a saucepan, until sugar is dissolved
once dissolved, add to melon puree
add lemon juice
pour mixture into shallow pan and place in the freezer

freeze for one hour before you begin raking with a fork, then continue raking at regular intervals until the puree is fully frozen and granular in texture

next time I’m adding some honey and fresh ginger!

#nofilter required when smoke from the #thomasfire envelopes the area. Wonderful canoe ride on #morrobay not Mars. Tx @akayakshack for the rental. Look forward to next time. #audreycancook Finally, only one sleeve to go on this project. I'm grateful that #noroyarn is sturdy, since I've #frogged the body of this sweater twice and the first sleeve three time. Can I say #homestretch now? #knittersofinstagram #knitting #audreycancook Sometimes a #toastedmarshmallow over an open flame is the only thing to satisfy. #audreycancook There are just never enough #teddybears. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #audreycancook Once a year I get to use my #enamal platter. Perfect for a #smallbatch Thanksgiving #audreycancook #persimmons are plentiful this time of year. 'What to do with them?' is always the question. I'm considering apple & persimmon #handpies a #smallbatch #audreycancook
