Pretty Exotic

I used the last of my watermelon today to make jelly. With lemon slices and rosewater. Yeah, I know-but if you go to the bother of making jelly, it really ought to be something you can't buy at Hy Vee.

I'll have a recipe and observations after they cool-probably late tonight, or tomorrow. Now I'm all excited to try lavender/orange flower water, or maybe grapefruit and tarragon. All I need are people willing to eat the stuff. There's always that moment where you're afraid it may not gel-and then it does, and you stand there over the pot, spoon in hand marveling at science.

The colour is really beautiful. I wonder if people would pay money for this stuff?
