    Preserving Watermelon

    Post by Durgan on Mon Oct 07, 2013 7:44 pm

    http://www.durgan.org/URL/?UBABW 7 October 2013 Watermelon Juice.
    I have access to several watermelon and desire to process them for long term storage.Three Sugar Baby were selected and cut into small pieces in preparation for cooking. An attempt was made to utilize much of the rind, since it has many nutrients. Weight was about 18 pounds. A litre of water was added to the cooking pot to facilitate cooking.The melon pieces were cooked until soft and beat into a slurry with the hand blender.The slurry was strained in the food mill, placed in litre jars and pressure canned at 15 PSI for 15 minutes for long term storage. Eight litres of juice was obtained. The juice is quite sweet and pleasant tasting. Pictures depict the process.
