Cooking watermelon marmalade
In order to prepare a light and summer dessert, it is first of all necessary to clean the pulp of the watermelon from the seeds and peel.
Next, the watermelon needs to be ground with a submersible blender into a homogeneous mass.
Watermelon puree is strained through a sieve in order to separate the juice from the pulp.
Strained watermelon juice is mixed with gelatin and left for 16-18 minutes.
A thicker watermelon mass should be warmed up to the first bubbles on the stove along with sugar and citric acid.
After boiling, swollen gelatin is added to the stewpan with the heated mass. Stir constantly and bring the watermelon sauce to a boil.
Further, the still hot liquid must be poured into silicone molds. The marmalade should be cooled for about two hours at room temperature, and then moved to a cool place for another 2-3 hours.
After the time has elapsed, the marmalade is removed from the molds and left to stabilize and strengthen for 1.5 hours.
Incredibly juicy and refreshing watermelon marmalade will be a great dessert on a hot summer day, and also perfect as a treat for any children's party or party.
