frozen watermelon puree --- would it be any good?

I wonder....

It would be tasty in the off season, maybe. Apparently it's more nutritious than we used to understand.

1. Maybe. I'd be tempted to strain the seeds and pulp out

and freeze the watermelon juice, something that's absolutely wonderful and my favorite juice of all time.

2. Sounds refreshing. Cold, sweet watermelon is a treat.

3. You can use it for various things, blended drinks, sorbet, etc.

I made watermelon freezer jam two summers back, that was pretty good although I followed a recipe in the pectin and it came out kind of sweet for my taste. If I did it in the future, I think I would use a pectin that allows for reduced sugar.

4. We love to make Watermelon Sorbet. Bill has been asking for it recently bit we keep forgetting to

buy any! I usually buy a 5lb watermelon to make enough for the two of us.

I think the frozen puree would be perfect. I usually smush mine in the food processor then add a little sugar and corn syrup, and a small bit of lemon or lime juice. It is somehow even more watermelon-y than the fresh fruit is. I think the pop of the acidic citrus turns the flavor up.
