      Very much like a snow cone with the flavor inside the ice! I used 6 cups of melon, I don't think my watermelon was as sweet as it needed to be, but it was still good. next time I'll add more sugar depending on the sweetness of the melon. Very refreshing in the summer, and surprisingly it doesn't melt too fast. Thanks I'mPat! Made for Went to the Market 2012.

      Just the right flavours to make a perfect granita on a warm summer's night.
      So very refreshing and just the thing for the warm weather.
      The hardest part of this recipe is waiting for it to fresh.
      Thanks Pat, lovely granita.
