Cantaloupe Ice

My Boys said this looked like an Alien head!  :D

It hot outside!  We want something fresh and cold to soothe the humidity and down right Heat we have here.  My husband bought the biggest cantaloupe I have ever seen.  When I cut it up it filled a huge rubbermaid bowl. 

I remembered I had some light simple syrup* leftover from putting up nectarines a few days before and thought about making cantaloupe ice. 

Very simple recipe....2 cups pureed cantaloupe add 1/2 cup light simple syrup* and give it another swirl.  Put in a shallow container in freezer for 45 minutes or until it starts to set around the edges.  Scrap around with a fork...back in freezer and check every 30 minutes or so, depending on your freezer.  Breaking the cantaloupe mixture.  It took 3 hours from start to finish.  Enjoy!  :D

 Ready for freezer
Ready to eat

*Boil 6 cups of water..take off heat...add 2 cups sugar stirring until desolved and cool.
