Looking for a real watermelon flavour hit? The Omniblend can be used to make all sorts of jams. Try this summery watermelon jam, and spread it on your scones, pikelets or pancakes!

  • 2 kgs watermelon (peeled and cut into chunks. Deseeding is optional (the seeds have nutritional value and will “disappear” when blended))
  • 1 Granny Smith apple (peeled, cored and roughly chopped)
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 1 kg jam-setting sugar (or use raw sugar and 2g of pectin)
  • 1 tsp butter
  1. Best using the 2 L Omni- jar: First use PULSE to blend the apple, 1 cup of the watermelon chunks, and lemon juice together until smooth. Progressively add the watermelon in batches in your Omniblender Pulse until coarsely puréed. You should have about 4 cups of purée.
  2. Pour the purée into a large, stainless steel saucepan. Add the sugar (and pectin if using), stir over a low heat, until dissolved. Add the butter and bring to a rolling boil. Cook for 4 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat. Skim off any foam. Test for setting. If it doesn’t start setting when a little is placed on a cold saucer, then quickly return it to the boil for 30 seconds. Pour into hot sterilised jars and seal.
