I saw this recipe on line and had to give it a try.
My favorite fruit is Watermelon! It's what makes the 90 degree days worth while in the summer, it's sweet, juicy and not really unhealthy. So making jam that I can open up in the deep freeze of winter sounded like a perfect idea.
The recipe is included here: http://blondiescakes.blogspot.com/2010/09/watermelon-jam.html
With most canning processes, it's just easier to put out a tried recipe since canning is more science than a lot of food we enjoy. I used more watermelon than in this recipe and less sugar.
And I didn't puree the fruit in advance.
I used an immersion blender to smooth while cooking the fruit for a while to
save some time and mess.
The rest was the same process.
My $3.99 Watermelon made up much more jam than I expected. This works out to about .75 per jar!
I'll have to let you know if it's a good as it looks when it sets up.
Can't wait to spread a little on a biscuit!
