Interesting fact, In the 7th century, watermelons were being cultivated in India, and by the 10th century had reached China, which is today the world’s single largest watermelon producer. Moorish invaders introduced the fruit into Europe and there is evidence of it being cultivated in Córdoba in 961 and also in Seville in 1158. It spread northwards through southern Europe, perhaps limited in its advance by summer temperatures being insufficient for good yields. The fruit had begun appearing in European herbals by 1600, and was widely planted in Europe in the 17th century as a minor garden crop. Source Wikipedia.
Watermelon Lime Slush Recipe
You only need a few simple ingredients:
4 cups of cubed, seedless watermelon
10 ice cubes (I actually ended up using 25 because the mixture wasn’t thick enough for me with only 10)
1/3 cup lime juice
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
Place watermelon and ice into a blender.
Pour in lime juice, sugar, and salt.
Blend until smooth.
