The wind is blowing on Randall’s Island, the temperature is dropping and we are sorting through pictures from the 2011 season in The Learning Garden. There were some failures, but many more successes. Making Agua Fresca was one of them.
It’s easy, refreshing, has few ingredients and needs little equipment.
RECIPE FOR AGUA FRESCA
6- 8 pounds seedless watermelon, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 tablespoon agave nectar
mint leaves for garnish
HOW TO MAKE IT:
Cut the watermelon from the rind.
Put the watermelon and agave in a blender and JUMP on a bicycle blender.
In 2012 we are looking to forward to more warm days and plenty more Agua Fresca.
