1 cup sugar
4 cups seeded, chopped watermelon
1/4 cup lime juice
Bring the water and sugar just to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves; remove from heat. Allow to cool.
Process the sugar syrup and watermelon in batches in a blender until smooth. Stir in the lime juice; cover and chill 2 hours.
Pour mixture into the freezer container of a 1-gallon ice-cream maker; freeze according to the manufacturer's directions.
