Watermelon Jelly

Watermelon jelly.  File this under, "Sounds like a better idea than it actually is."

But at least it's pretty.

Nothing wrong with trying. What was wrong with it. It does look pretty.

Birds, Bees, Berries, and Blooms, it tasted like cooked watermelon rather than fresh -- not the best flavor. The directions were to boil it for quite a while before adding pectin, then for five more minutes after the pectin. I think a shorter boiling time might have yielded tastier results. Oh well, live and learn :)

Well now I know, I have always wanted to try it and to make watermelon rind pickles. I am glad you tried it now I don't have to, I hope you are having a nice summer. :)

Farm Girl, I hope you still try making watermelon rind pickles. Those ARE worth it :)

I can't fathom taking a perfectly delicious food and working to transform it. This lazy Bumble will stick to spitting seeds and wiping juice off her chin ;0)

The Bumbles, I guess it's the panicked feeling of "How on earth are the two of us going to eat up this ginormous watermelon?" But I am discovering that frozen watermelon cubes, whirred in the blender with a touch of ginger ale and lime juice, make a mighty fine drink :) So that's my current strategy.
