WATERMELON FRUIT JELLY
Cut the watermelon in half. Scoop out the watermelon flesh, remove the seeds. Do not throw away the skin, we will use this as the jelly mold.
Place the watermelon flesh into a blender and blitz. Pass the watermelon juice through a sieve, discard the pulp.
(Save the excess watermelon juice to add to smoothies)
Cut grapes and strawberries in half.
Add 100ml of the liquid into a pot. Sprinkle over the gelatin powder. Set aside for 5 minutes to absorb and become spongy. Place the pot on a very slow heat to dissolve the gelatin ensuring not to boil or stir. If you boil gelatin, it can lose its ability to set. Remove from the heat
In a larger pot add the sugar and watermelon juice. Heat for 5 minutes till the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat.
Add the gelatin mixture into the watermelon juice and sugar mixture, whisk to dissolve the gelatin. Set aside to cool slightly.
Place the two empty watermelon halves over two bowls. The bowls will stabilize the fruit while its setting in the fridge.
Divide the blueberries, strawberries, and grapes between the two watermelon halves. Pour the watermelon jelly over the fruit. Place the watermelon halves in the fridge to set over night.
