Fresh watermelon jello + sea salt


 I came across this recipe and though the weather here is not inspiring me to make it yet I really could not wait for summer to share it. This Fresh Watermelon Jello & Sea Salt recipe is as easy as could be to make. Whether you serve it spiked or not it is sure to be a crowd pleaser on a hot summer day.


  • 3 cups fresh watermelon juice
  • 2 cups water*
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 packets unflavored gelatin
  • coarse grain sea salt

 Start by cutting the watermelon in half and scooping out the fruit. Blend the fruit and strain through a fine mesh sieve, discarding the pulp. My watermelon made about 3 cups juice, if yours makes a little more or less don't sweat it.

In a pot combine the water and sugar and stir to dissolve while cooking over medium heat. Remove from heat and whisk in the watermelon juice and unflavored gelatin. Pour into your hollow watermelon halves and refrigerate for 4+ hours.

Once the jello has set, place the watermelon halves on a cutting board with the jello side facing up. Cut in half. I tried flipping one of these over so the rind side was up to cut it in half and jello fell out, because it's so heavy. So don't do that. Even though it's kind of funny. :)

Sprinkle with a little coarse sea salt and serve! Each wedge can easily serve two people so these could be fun for a party with a bunch of couples, or for kids. Enjoy!
