  • Cut a small watermelon in half and quarter a small watermelon. Scoop the watermelon flesh from the rind with an ice cream scooper and put it in a large glass measuring bowl or a large bowl until you have 4 cups of watermelon flesh and watermelon juice.
  • Add the freshly squeezed lemon juice into the bowl with the watermelon pieces. Sprinkle the sugar into the bowl and mix until the sugar has dissolved.
  • Pour the melon mixture into a blender or food processor. Pulse to break the watermelon pieces up well and then hit the puree button process until all the pieces of watermelon are liquified.
  • Pour the sweetened watermelon puree into a glass 9 x 13 baking pan. Cover with plastic wrap.
  • Place the pan in the freezer.
  • After one hour take the pan out of the freezer and break up the ice crystals with a fork. Run your fork around the inside edges of the pan also to incorporate those frozen bits in with the rest of the mixture.
  • Repeat this process every hour until the granita is completely frozen and broken up into ice crystals.
