- 3 pounds cubed watermelon (a 15-pound seedless watermelon yields about 12 pounds of cubes )
- Or 5 cups watermelon juice
- ¼ cup honey
Use a juicer to juice the watermelon or blend it in a blender, then strain it through a fi ne-mesh strainer into a 3-quart saucepan.
Heat the saucepan over medium heat. Let the juice simmer and reduce by ⅔ (this will take about an hour), skimming off any foam that comes to the surface. You’ll be left with about 1½ cups of liquid.
Strain the reduced watermelon juice into a pint jar or glass storage container, then stir in the honey.
Chill the syrup in the refrigerator until ready to use. It will keep for up to 5 days.
