Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Remove seeds from melon halves; cut thin slice from bottom of each half. Scoop out melon flesh, leaving 1-inch-thick shells. Place upside-down on paper towels to drain.
  • Add boiling water to jelly powder; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Stir in cold water. Refrigerate 15 min. or until slightly thickened. Pour into melon shells.
  • Refrigerate 3 hours or until jelly is set. Cut into wedges.

Special Extra

Add 2 cups chopped fruit to thickened jelly before pouring into melon halves. Since fresh or frozen pineapple, papaya, kiwi, figs, guava and gingerroot all contain enzymes that prevent jelly from setting, never use them in jelly recipes. But you can use any canned fruits or juices since the canning process kills this enzyme

Variation

Prepare using a honeydew melon and Jell-O Lime Jelly Powder.
