How can I reuse or recycle melon skin :let’s make a delicious watermelon jam.  

If you are used to throwing away watermelon peels after eating a juicy slice, from today you can say no more waste.

Throwing away a watermelon peel is wasteful because we can recycle it by making a delicious watermelon jam.

You can spread this fresh and fragrant jam on any food. Besides, you can store it in the refrigerator even for a whole month.

The process of making the jam is very simple. At the same time, we will recycle a food that is antioxidant and full of vitamins.

The ingredients to be used to prepare this tasty watermelon jam are:

  • 1 grated lemon or orange peel
  • 200 g of sugar
  • 600 g of watermelon rind
  • Juice of one lemon or orange

Procedure:

  1. We take our watermelon and divide it into several pieces. Next, again using a knife, we divide the pulp from the peel.
  2. Once we finish this operation, let us set aside the pulp so that we can eat it later.
  3. After that, we take the weight of the peel indicated in the list and carefully cut off the remaining attached pulp and then dice it.
  4. We transfer the diced pulp to a small saucepan and then add the grated peel of one lemon. Next, we also pour in the juice of the same lemon and the sugar. We stir everything with a spoon and then cover the saucepan. After that, we let the resulting mixture stand for about 30 minutes.
  5. At the end of half an hour we place the saucepan on the stove. We cook the mixture for 35 to 40 minutes, always covering with a lid.
  6. Once the desired result is obtained, we remove the pot from the heat and with an immersion blender we go to process the pulp. Mind you: depending on our taste we can blend the fruit completely or leave some pieces.
  7. After that we put the made puree back on the stove until we get the consistency of a jam.
  8. All that remains is to let the result cool to room temperature. After that, we just need to transfer the jam into a glass jar.

You will never be able to do without this special watermelon jam again.

Enjoy your meal
