1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
4 cups watermelon
1 tbsp lemon juice
Sprigs of mint leaves
Dehydrated Candied lemon rinds (optional)
Over a medium heat mix water with sugar and stir until dissolved.
Make puree of watermelon with the sugar syrup and lemon juice until smooth.
Pour the mixture into a baking pan and freeze for an hour. Using a fork, scrap the granita.
Do this after every hour for at least 5-6 times or until frozen and fluffy.
For serving fluff up the granita with a fork. Scoop into bowls, garnish it mint leaves and candied lemon rinds.
