Watermelon jelly, a light dessert

Gelatin with fresh fruit

It makes a good stomach and refreshes us. A watermelon jelly for dessert? We must take advantage of the fact that we are in full season for this wonderful fruit.

As we know that it has a high water content, we are going to prepare a homemade jelly.

I put the amount of gelatin that I used. Of course, I recommend that you read the instructions of the gelatin that you are going to use to check how many grams or sheets you need

Here are the links to other recipes with watermelon: Watermelon frozen, Special watermelon popsicles for the little ones, Special watermelon cake in 5 minutes. The kids love them.

    I have made an identical recipe and the gelatin does not set.
    I have looked for the problem and they tell me that certain fruits, including watermelon, have enzymes that cancel the function of gelatin and that the solution is to boil the fruit to destroy the enzymes and then continue with the recipe.
