Evan was having a rough few days with his molars a couple of weeks ago, so I found this recipe for Gelo di Melone to use the watermelon from our CSA box. Gelo di Melone (Watermelon Pudding, Gelo di Anguria, Gelu di Muluni in Sicilian) is a summertime Italian dessert from Palermo. It is easy to prepare with just a few ingredients. Garnishes can include cinnamon, pistachios, chocolate chips, and sometimes candied pumpkin or jasmine.
I have tried watermelon a few times now with Evan, but unfortunately he seems to have inherited his father’s tastes and just doesn’t like it. The pudding may have been unsuccessful in helping Evan with his molars, but I still enjoyed it.
