Happy watermelon day! Yep, there’s an actual day for your favorite fruit. And that day is TODAY! So…let’s make some watermelon granita. K?
It’s only three ingredients and you probably already have everything you need at home. Here’s the ingredients list…
– 4 cups watermelon, pureed
– 1/2 cup sugar
– 1/4 cup water
Youll also need:
2 quart sauce pan // Whisk // 9″ square pan // Large fork or spoon
1. Start by heating the sugar and water in the sauce pan over medium heat. Cook the solution until it comes to a simmer and cook for about 3 minutes. Remove from the stove and set aside to cool.
2. Once the sugar solution has cooled, add it to the watermelon puree and whisk to combine. Pour into the pan and put the pan into the freezer.
3. Freeze for about 25 minutes and rake with a fork or spoon. Repeat this step a couple more times and your granita is ready.
