Ice Up

Yesterday when I talked about some signs of impending summer I mentioned freezing watermelon. I thought everyone knew about that, but based on some of the comments I found out I was wrong.

The "recipe" for Frozen Watermelon couldn't be easier:  Cut the fruit into small chunks, place them on a cookie sheet, and freeze.  Store in a plastic bag.   To serve, pour some chunks into a bowl.  Eat them before they thaw; if you don't they're mushy and awful.

They can also be pureed in a blender for a frozen slushy drink  (With optional alcohol for an adult version)


  1. Thanks again for the info, I'm going to do this next time I have left over watermelon. :-)

  2. I've never heard of this! I'm going to remember this about mid August when the heat is unbearable! ha.

  3. Thanks for the forgotten highschool memory of injecting a whole watermelon with what amounted to enough vodka to take down the Russian army. And yet it tasted so good! Not sure what happened after we finished it.....
