Summer is not over yet and this is official.
How about some melon granita to celebrate this fact?
Ok, lets get started. I used to have an ice cream maker but it broke. That fact has nothing to do with this but I thought of it making this and thought I’d mention it.
a cup of water
and a cup of sugar.
some candied orange peal. Bring to simmer over high heat.
Stir the sugar. Turn down the heat and
get out the melon cubes.
Toss in the blender.
Pour the sugar/syrup over the melons strain out the orange peals
I used a “fancy” strainer, a spoon. That kept most of the peals from going in.
Blend until smooth. Taste. Adjust if necessary.
Pour into a pan and freeze.
Pull it out every 1 1/2 hours and stir. Oh look, there’s my lens cap!
with a fork scrape granita into icy flakes and serve immediately
Or layer with whole milk yogurt and say Go Vols! After all, it is that time of year.
