Serves: 40 

  • 1 (1kg) watermelon
  • 600g caster sugar
  • 3 lemons - rinsed, sliced and seeds removed

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:2hr  ›  Ready in:2hr15min 

  1. Remove the green rind of the melon, and dice the white part into small cubes, leaving the red flesh mostly intact. Remove seeds.
  2. In a heavy stockpot, add the prepared watermelon, sugar and lemons. Bring to the boil over medium heat, and let the mixture boil slowly for 2 hours, stirring occasionally. The temperature of the mixture should be at 105 degrees C so the jam will set.
  3. Remove lemon with slotted spoon.
  4. Transfer to hot sterilised jars and seal. Check the seals after a few hours. Process any unsealed jars in a water bath. Refrigerate preserves after seal is broken.
