For the fourth of July I had bought a huge watermelon on sale at Whole Foods. It was huge and delicious, but I couldn't eat it all before it would start to turn. So, what's a thrifty girl to do? Freeze it! I cut it up into lots of pieces, and tucked them into several zipper freezer bags.
Here I am a week later with a half of a watermelon, cubed and frozen What to do? Why Watermelon Sorbet, of course!
Whir the frozen watermelon in the food processor until it looks like watermelon slush. You could stop here, and enjoy a simple fruit treat.
I went a little further, and added:
- Juice of one lime (I started with one 1/2, and added more to taste)
- 1/4 to 1/3 cup of white sugar (to taste)
If the watermelon is too slushy for your liking at this point, put it back into the freezer for at least a half hour.
Pulse with the food processor again, then serve with fresh mint in a dessert cup.
I hope you enjoy!
