Ingredients
  • 1 small watermelon (about 3kg in weight)
  • 2 x 13g packs Dr. Oetker Platinum Grade Leaf Gelatine
  • 4 x 135g packs strawberry jelly, cubed
  • 48 blueberries
Method
  • Cut the watermelon in half lengthways. Use a spoon to scoop out the flesh and seeds. Discard the seeds and reserve the melon flesh for eating or juicing.

  • Soak half the gelatine according to the pack instructions. Meanwhile, put half the jelly in a jug and just cover with boiling water. Stir until dissolved. Squeeze out the gelatine leaves and stir into the jelly until dissolved.

  • Divide between the melon-skin halves and top up with cold water to come halfway up the watermelon. Chill for 1 hr 30 mins until semi-set, then push half of the blueberries into the jelly

  • Repeat the process with the remaining jelly, gelatine and blueberries. Chill overnight to set. Use a hot knife to cut into slices. Wrap in clingfilm to transport.
