How To Make Watermelon Iceblocks

A hot summer’s afternoon calls for a cooling treat, and these fresh fruit iceblocks are perfect

I have used watermelon, but try other fruits, such as pineapple, passionfruit or nectarine with a squeeze of lemon or lime.

Makes 8

½ cup caster sugar
½ cup water
500g seedless watermelon

1. First make the sugar syrup. Into a pot place the sugar and water, bringing to a simmer for 8-10 minutes. Remove and cool completely.

2. Puree the watermelon and add half the syrup. Taste and, if you like it a little sweeter, add a bit more. Some watermelons are sweeter than others. Pour into an iceblock holder and freeze until solid.
