Ingredients

  • ½

    cup sugar

  • ½

    cup light corn syrup or light agave nectar (the syrup or nectar makes the resulting texture quite smooth)

  • ¼

    cup freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice

  • 3

    fresh mint leaves

  • 3

    pounds watermelon, rind and seeds removed, cut into chunks

Directions

1. In a small saucepan, bring the sugar, corn syrup or agave nectar, lime or lemon juice, and mint to a boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and let cool. 2. In a blender, puree half of the watermelon chunks. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer into a large bowl. Repeat with the remaining watermelon. 3. Add the slightly cooled syrup to the watermelon and mix well. Place in a 2-quart container, cover, and freeze for 3 to 4 hours. Flake the mixture with a fork. Scoop it up, place it in pretty bowls, and accept the oohs and aahs.
