  • 4 cups seeded watermelon, honeydew or cantaloupe chunks
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon or lime juice


  1. In food processor or blender, puree melon of choice.
  2. In small saucepan, heat 1 cup puree and sugar over medium heat, stirring, just until sugar dissolves.
  3. Pour into shallow 8- or 9-inch square metal pan; stir in remaining puree and lemon juice. Freeze. Every 30 minutes, break up crystals with fork as they form at edges of pan; stir frozen parts toward center. Continue until entire mixture is a firm but not solid frozen mass, 3 to 4 hours.
  4. Scrape ice with fork to lighten texture.
  5. Scoop into paper cones with ice cream scoop.
