directions

  • In a blender, blend the lime juice and watermelon together, creating watermelon water.
  • Strain the liquid through a fine mesh strainer to remove any seeds.
  • Place 1/2 cup of the watermelon water into a saucepan and add the sugar, lime zest and ginger coins. Bring the mixture to a simmer to dissolve the sugar and infuse the liquid with the ginger and lime flavor. Set aside to cool.
  • Add the grated ginger to the remaining watermelon water. Once the syrup is cool, remove the ginger coins and mix into the watermelon water. Pour the mixture into a 9 by 13-inch glass baking dish. Place the dish into the freezer to chill.
  • Every 30 minutes, scrape the mixture with a fork to break up the ice crystals and to keep it light and fluffy. Continue scraping every 30 minutes for at least 2 hours. Scrape the granita into elegant glasses and sprinkle with fleur de sel.
  • Cook's Notes:

  • Taste your watermelon, this will tell you how much sugar to add to your simple syrup.
  • The fork helps to create ice crystals that will help give you a slushy consistency.
