Cutting The Perfect Watermelon Slice

Combining the best summer snacks (watermelon and jelly), this jelly slice recipe is the perfect way to enjoy summer! But cutting the perfect slice can be tricky!

No matter the size or shape of your watermelon, you can cut the perfect watermelon jelly slice by following these simple steps.

Step 1: Cut In Half

Place your watermelon shells flat-side up. With a sharp knife cut your watermelon in half.

Step 2: Cut In Half, Again

With the jelly side up, cut your watermelon in half again. You should now, have 4 watermelon quarters. This will make the watermelon easy to handle when slicing your wedges

Step 3: Slice Your Wedges

With one of the quarters flat-side down, you can now cut your watermelon slices. Repeat this step with your remaining quarters. Be sure to slice thicker pieces! Too thin slice and the jelly will flop over!

Top Tips For Making Your Watermelon Jelly Slice

If you can't find a mini melon, a large watermelon can get the job done just as well! Simply cut your watermelon in half, scoop out the flesh and measure how much water they hold.

Remember, for each litre of water you will need:

  • 2 x Aeroplane Watermelon Flavoured jelly crystals
  • 1 litre boiling water
  • 1 ½ tbsp gelatin

Does you jelly mixture not reach the top of your watermelon half? Trim the rind once the jelly is set and your Watermelon Jelly Slices are good to go!

When preparing your watermelon shell, do not make the rind too smooth. A little rough texture helps the jelly stick in place better, making it easier to cut, serve and eat! Similarly, if there is too much flesh the jelly will not properly stick and slide off when cut!

INGREDIENTS

PREPARATION

  • 1 Using a large spoon, scoop out and remove flesh from the watermelon, setting aside for another use (for best results, remove ALL the pink flesh, leaving the white and green outer rind intact).
  • 2 Place the watermelon shell in an appropriately sized bowl to hold the shell. Be sure to make shell stable and easy to move.
  • 3 In a jug or large bowl, place the watermelon jelly crystals and the gelatin. Mix with a fork until combined. Pour 2 cups (500mL) of boiling water over and stir continuously until all the crystals and gelatin are dissolved.
  • 4 Pour the jelly into the watermelon shell all the way to the rim, making sure your watermelon is as level as possible. Allow the jelly to cool completely then drop ⅓ of the blueberries or choc chips into the jelly randomly. Place in the fridge and set a timer for 10mins. When the timer goes off add another ⅓ of the blueberries or choc chips and repeat with remaining blueberries or choc chips. Place in the fridge and leave to set for 4 hours or overnight.
  • 5 To serve, use a sharp knife and slice the watermelon jelly into wedges.
