For me, this is what Flour Pot Kitchen is all about; family & friends celebrating life over a delicious meal prepared together. Watching everyone work in the kitchen, laughing, cooking, and creating memories makes my heart swell with joy.
It's fun mayhem in the kitchen with noodles a flyin', taster-spoons a dippin' and delicious fragrances filling the air. In the end, the meal comes together like magic. The commotion ends and all are ready to sit and enjoy the amazing feast that was just prepared by many hands.
For me, a perfect night.
On these warm summer days, it's nice to pull out a bucket of this tasty, refreshing homemade watermelon slushy from your freezer to cool you off. It only takes minutes to make, and a few hours to freeze. It's a healthy way to cool off your taste buds and get a serving of fruit!
You can reduce the sugar if your melon is super sweet or if you have a simple syrup use that instead of sugar. When frozen, scoop the granita out with a warm spoon, put in a pretty glass and sprinkle with fresh berries or lime zest, make a sno-cone for your kids or for a grown up version add a splash of Vodka or Seltzer, and sip away....
4 cups seedless watermelon chunks
1/2 cup sugar
Juice of 2 limes or about 1/4 to 1/2 cup
Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Puree until smooth. Pour into a shallow, wide pan covering with a lid or saran wrap. At the two or three hour mark take it out of the freezer and scrape with a fork or large spoon. Repeat process two more times. Store covered in the freezer until your ready to scrape away the heat with something cool to eat.
