We planted our watermelon late, so we’re still harvesting it. Those of you reaching for your fall sweaters can bookmark this for next year.

Watermelon and Raspberry Granita

  • 12 ounces raspberries, fresh or frozen
  • juice from one lime
  • 1 tsp rosewater
  • 6-8 mint leaves
  • 8 cups watermelon
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and let sit for about 20-30 minutes. Blend mixture, working in batches if needed. Pour into a glass container (about the size of a brownie pan), cover and freeze. To serve, scrape into bowls. Garnish with fresh mint.
