How to make Watermelon Jelly
Picked up a nice looking whole seedless watermelon on sale at Shop-Rite.
Chopped up about 4 cups of seedless melon
Puree in the blender, I ended up with almost four cups of the liquid instead of the 2 that the recipe said I'd wind up with, probably because I really packed it into the measuring cup. I think a recipe with by weight quantities might be better, but I can imagine that volume to weight ratio might vary depending on the type of watermelon.
This week Shop-Rite has a 6 pint flat of blueberries on sale for 6.99... I am very tempted to make a go of some blueberry preserves next weekend, since my own blueberry bushes wont be producing anything for at least 2 or 3 years.
We wiped out the mint "crop" while we were weeding a week ago, so either we let it grow out again, or I'm not going to attempt it. I know it's growing in the same soil as the tomatoes and peppers I'm growing, but I'm a little leery about trying to make something edible out of what I consider a nuisance weed... it just seems gross, anyone out there who loves mint jelly want to convince me otherwise? The only use I can think of is for serving with lamb, and I don't even care for lamb.
