Last year I experimented with some unusual canning ingredients and this is one of my favorites.
It’s been getting a lot of Pinterest time so I thought I’d repost it again this summer.
I saw this recipe on line and had to give it a try.
My favorite fruit is Watermelon!
And being able to enjoy those juicy flavors in the chill of winter as well………
sounded like a perfect idea.
The recipe is included here:
With most canning processes, it’s just easier to put out a tested recipe since canning is more science than a lot of food we enjoy.
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!
Can’t wait to spread a little on a biscuit!
