Watermelon Jalapeño Jelly Recipe
Today we are making Watermelon Jalapeño Jelly. I adore watermelon (who doesn’t?), and have had a great crop of jalapeños in my backyard farm this season. I thought, what if I put them together and made a jelly? I asked my friend Erin what she thought of this idea, and she wondered what one might eat watermelon jalapeño jelly with? I thought this was a decent question so I asked Jacinda. Her answer was “a spoon.” Ha.

And of course you could always pour it over some cream cheese and eat with crackers. Or spoons.
