To make this simple, refreshing dessert, you'll need about four pounds of watermelon. The redder the fruit, the prettier the granita will be. Beautiful Desserts

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a small saucepan, combine the sugar with 1/3 cup of water and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Transfer the syrup to a blender or food processor, add half of the watermelon cubes and the lime juice and pulse until smooth. Add the remaining watermelon cubes and blend until smooth.

Step 2    

Pass the puree through a coarse strainer, pressing down on the solids. Transfer to a 9-by-13-inch nonreactive baking dish and freeze, stirring every 30 minutes with a fork, until all the liquid has frozen completely, about 3 hours. Spoon the granita into tall glasses or bowls and garnish with the melon wedges.

Make Ahead

The granita can be frozen for up to 2 days. Stir before serving.
