Watermelon Ice

We had one too many watermelons during the summer. We grew a few in the summer and the plants died off before they became fully ripe. The deal with watermelon is that they don't ripen that much off of the vine. The thing they stayed perfectly fine for about 2 months after they were taken from the plant.

Even the not so ripe watermelons are still full of taste and sweetness so it was not hard eating them but towards the end , we had eaten a little too many. Did not want to toss the watermelons so I pulped a couple and froze it. These watermelon had seeds in them if you have the seedless ones it is even more easier.

Who knew we would a couple of hot days in winter, hot is a relative term here, will crave for something cold. That is when I fished out the frozen watermelon from the back of the freezer. What do you know that is the perfect cold treat we all craved.





I made some sugar syrup to add to the ice but if the fruits pulp is sweet on its own, reduce the amount of sugar added.


Shall we make and enjoy some of that delicious watermelon ice?
