Honey Watermelon Ice

We tried a new recipe this week. It came from a farming magazine - perhaps The Progressive Farmer - and is easy, light, and delicious. Joan mixed it in less than 10 minutes, then froze it, and we ate it the next day.

Honey Watermelon Ice
5 c. cubed and seeded red, pink, orange or yellow watermelon (about 2 lbs.)
1/3 c. fresh orange juice
1/2 sugar
2 T. honey

(We omitted the sugar and in place of it and the 2 T. honey we substituted 1/3 c. raw wild honey.)

Process all ingredients in blender until smooth. Pour mixture into 8" or 9" baking pan. Cover and freeze about 4 hours or until nearly firm. Break frozen mixture into small chunks with a spoon. Place in large bowl. Beat with electric mixer until smooth, but not melted - about 3 minutes. Return to pan; freeze 4 hours longer or until firm. Yield: 5 cups.

Oh... that looks fantastic! We have half a watermelon that we just can't quite finish. But I'll bet we could if we did it this way. Thanks for the recipe!
