Sweet Watermelon Ice [ Native American]

Total Time

This recipe makes a refreshing ice that is perfect for hot weather. From "Native American Cooking," by Lois Ellen Frank


  1. Pour the watermelon juice into a shallow glass baking dish. Add the sugar and lemon juice and stir well. Place the dish in the freezer and chill.
  2. Remove the pan every 1/2 hour and stir. The juice will form light, grainy ice crystals as it freezes. Repeat this process until the juice is fully frozen, about 4 hours, depending on the temperature of your freezer. You can also use an ice cream maker, following the manufacturer's directions.
  3. Serve immediately, or store in the freezer in a covered container up to several weeks.
  4. Number of servings depend on how hungry you are.
