Day 3 Week 3 Of BM#53 -
Can you imagine a summer without watermelon? Oh no! I cannot. My little one likes her watermelon even in the thick of winter! So it is virtually an year round fruit at home.
I pamper the kids with this Granita when it is the season for them to play outside. Yes. Since we live in the northern region, we hardly get 3 months of 'real' summer. So when the kids come in sweating in the middle of their play, it is a delight to listen to their oohs and aahs slurping this icy cold Granita.
Watermelon, de-seeded and rind removed 5-6 cups
Lime/Lemon Juice 1-2 Tbsp
Sugar / Honey as needed
Salt 1/8 tsp
Method Of Preparation -
In a food processor, add the watermelon, salt, honey, lime juice and blend until smooth.
Pour into a shallow glass dish and place it uncovered in the freezer.
After about 30-45 minutes, when the ice begins to form along the sides of the glass dish, rake it with a fork to break up the lumps of ice.
Put it back in the freezer, continuing to stir it after every 30-45 minutes until all of the juice is crystalized. It takes about 4-5 hours for the granita to set properly.
Flake the granita into bowls and serve with a mint garnish.
