Watermelon Jelly

I have been on a jelly kick lately.  I usually stay away from it because it just takes too long.  I found this recipe a while ago.  If you like the taste of watermelon Jolly Rancher candies you will love this jelly!!  It is SO easy.

Watermelon Jelly

4 cups seeded, diced watermelon
3 1/2 cups sugar
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 of a 6 oz. package liquid fruit pectin (1 foil pouch)

Place watermelon in a blender and puree until smooth.  You should have 2 cups.

In a large pot combine first 3 ingredients.  Bring to full rolling boil and stir in pectin all at once and boil hard for one minute, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat, skim foam and ladle into jars leaving 1/4 inch head space.  Place 2 part seal on with ring.  Put in a Hot water bath canner and process for 5 minutes.
