Watermelon Ice

1 large round watermelon* (the redder the flesh the better)
1/4 cup white sugar

Cut the watermelon into pieces removing all the seeds and the rind. Put the pieces into a blender and liquify. (If you don't have a blender just mash the watermelon until you have alot of juice). Add the sugar making sure it is totally dissolved. Pour mixture into shallow pans (large sheet cake baking ones work well here) and place in freezer. After crystals form stir them into the liquid. Continue to do this until it is all ice crystals (looks like sno-cone ice).

Note: The Watermelon Ice is very pretty. If there is any left as the bowl melts it may make a nice punch base.

*About the size of a soccer ball If you can't find a round one get a regular shaped one about 10 to 12 inches long and not too fat.
