Sweet, Simple Summer

I've been enjoying a sweet taste of summer this year... Watermelon!  I've finally done something a little more with it than shove it in my mouth over the kitchen sink too.

After balling half a watermelon, I decided to make granita with what was left after scraping down the sides.

2 cups watermelon
1/2 cup evaporated cane juice or sugar

Combine the melon and sugar in a blender or a bowl with an immersion blender.

Pour into a shallow, freezer safe container with a lid and place in the freezer.  Every hour for three hours, remove from freezer and scrape, or rake, the granita.  Scrape before serving too.

It may not be Taylor Street, but it tastes like summer to me!
