Dave's Story

Nothing says summertime to me like watermelon. Honestly though, I will eat watermelon in the dead of winter, if it's available to me. I switch-up sugar for the Truvía® Baking Blend just look at the Calories count!

Getting creative a few years ago, I saw a watermelon rind pickles at a local street festival, and I thought why can't I make watermelon jam? I got to work, and though it seemed to take a lot of watermelon, the results were amazing!

Ingredients

6 c
watermelon, seedless, pureed
2 c
truvía® baking blend
1/2 c
lemon juice, fresh
1 pkg
fruit pectin, powdered
