Step by Step Instructions
  1. Place watermelon cubes in a blender or food processor. Cover and blend or process until smooth. You should have about 3 cups of pureed watermelon. Stir in sugar.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the gelatin and cranberry juice. Let mixture stand for 5 minutes. Stir mixture over low heat until gelatin is dissolved.
  3. Stir gelatin mixture into the pureed melon. Pour into an 8x8x2-inch baking pan. Cover and freeze about 2 hours or until firm.
  4. Break up frozen sherbet and plance in a chilled mixer bowl. Beat with a mixer on medium to high speed until sherbet is fluffy. Return to pan. Cover and freeze about 6 hours until firm.
  5. To serve, let stand at room temperature for 5 minutes before scooping.
