I've never done this in an ice cream maker, but I've made this, or a version of it, several times. I've subbed out raspberries, strawberries, or blueberries and it works. I've added a wee bit of vodka (maybe more than a wee bit), and that works too.

I just puree and pour it into the machine, no additions. It is usually sweet enough to stand on it's own. I've done the same with cantaloupe and honeydew, they need a little water to puree and must be very ripe.

Chicken In a Watermelon

2009 August John on Wine – a wine blog

Chicken in a Watermelon Recipe

(I think it might be kewl prepped in a slow cooker using cut up watermelon.)

The watermelon-glazed bbq'd meatballs, & watermelon & scallop skewers sound good too:

You missed part about running around in your underwear with the empty watermelon shell on your head like a helmet repeating the words, Take me to your leader. Then waking up the next morning outside on the picnic table not being to remember any of it....

That explains what happens at my neighbour's annual family reunion the long weekend in August...wondered about that stranger I'd find under my picnic table with a watermelon on his head...he'll really get a surprise this year when he meets Cocky Rocky under there!

These are some awesome ideas! Keep em coming. I'm intrigued by watermelon pie and am going to try it. This week we've had watermelon grilled, frozen, salad-ized and plain. There's more melon in the fridge....

Puree a few cups of the fruit and infuse into vodka for watermelon-flavored vodka. I was going to mention pickled watermelon rind, as well. I made some last year and they were fantastic I love having them with pulled pork sandwiches.
