Let’s get to it.
- 1 cup sugar

In a small saucepan, bring sugar and water to a boil. Cook and stir until sugar is dissolved; set aside.
In a blender or food processor, process the watermelon in batches until pureed. Transfer to a large bowl; stir in the sugar syrup and lemon juice.
Pour into a 13-in. x 9-in. dish; cover and freeze for 8 hours or until firm.
