How To Make Icy Melon Granita

Icy melon milk granita is an easy make-ahead treat for a hot summer day. (No need to scrape our sherbet-like mixture every 30 minutes, as with most granitas — just rake it once at the end for the right consistency.)

6 cups cubed melon
1/3 cup condensed milk
1/4 cup fresh lime or lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt

1. In a food processor or blender, combine melon with condensed milk, lime or lemon juice, and salt. Puree until smooth. Transfer to an 8-inch square baking dish; freeze until firm. Before serving, scrape with a fork until it has the texture of shaved ice.
