Homemade Watermelon Jam

Watermelon jam!!! Yes you heard it right, watermelon jam. Not something that is very common. One day I got home a watermelon that wasn’t sweet. I had already made granitas and smoothies and didn’t want to repeat it and hence ended up making jam. But it turned out so good that now I get watermelon just to make jam. Try it out and you will know what I am talking about.

– Boil it till it reduces further and thickens. Dip and coat the spoon with jam. Remove, and run your finger through the middle of the jam. If a clear path is left, the mixture is ready.

– The jam thickens further as it cools.

– I use funnels or piping bags to put them in the jar as it keeps the jar clean. Spoon them or pipe them into the jar once it is completely cooled.
