Introduction: Frozen Watermelon

Nothing beats watermelon, except frozen watermelon. This sweet treat is fantastic as a chilling refreshment in the afternoon heat or after a meal. The simplicity of the procedure means it is very easy to make and it can be whipped up every few days to keep you cool throughout the summer.

Step 1: Choosing the Watermelon and Cutting

Picture of Choosing the Watermelon and Cutting

Buy a watermelon that is sweet and juicy. I have found that knocking on them and choosing the one that makes the most "hollow" sounding noise is a good way to determine which ones are ripe. Cut off a slice about an inch thick and chop it up into chunks that will fit in a blender or vita-mix.

Step 2: Blend the Watermelon

Blend all your pieces up until there aren't any chunks left. Then pour the slurry into a metal bowl and stick it in the freezer.

Step 3: Mashing

Every hour or so take the watermelon out of the freezer and break up any frozen bits. After about five or six hours it should have the consistency of a snow cone at which point you can serve it.

Step 4: Serving

Scoop your watermelon into a nice little bowl and garnish with a sprig of mint or chervil.
