Watermelon Rind Jam.

Olia Hercules' Watermelon Rind Jam Recipe on Food52
Olia Hercules’ Watermelon Rind Jam
Slightly adapted from Mamushka
Makes two 450-milliliter jars

- 500 grams watermelon skin, tough thin green rind peeled and discarded, white skin finely chopped

- 300 grams golden caster sugar (or substitute superfine sugar or demerara or turbinado, ground fine in the food processor)
4 limes, halved and thinly sliced

Mix all the ingredients together in a container, cover with cling film, and leave in the refrigerator overnight.
Cook the mixture in a non-reactive saucepan over low heat, making sure the sugar melts before it boils, for 50 minutes or until the watermelon skin turns translucent.
Pour into 2 warm sterilized 450-milliliter jars, seal and let cool.
Store in the refrigerator.
It should keep unopened for several months.
