If you like the flavor of watermelon you will like this!
Food process or blend watermelon until completely smooth. That should make about 2 C of juice.
At this point I strain mine, but you do have to.
In a 6- to 8-quart Dutch oven combine the watermelon puree, sugar and lemon juice. Bring the mixture to a full rolling boil (a boil that cannot be stirred down) over high heat, stirring constantly.
Stir in the pectin all at once. Return mixture to a full rolling boil; boil hard for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
Take off heat. Skim off foam.
Ladle jelly into clean hot half-pint jars, leaving 1/4-inch head space.
Process in a boiling water bath canner for 10min. Allow to cool completely away from drafts, then store in cool, dark place. Makes 4 half-pints.

If you are lucky enough to live where the cherries are aplenty I advise you to print out this Sweet Cherry Vanilla Jam recipe and tape it somewhere that you will not forget about it when the cherries come into season! Or you can use frozen cherries like I did.
This recipe was made using the new Ball Jam & Jelly Maker but you can make it the traditional way also.
