    TommyGato's Note:

    A unique, good tasting, somewhat exotic dessert. Called "Gelo di Melone" if you use all the ingredients, a summer treat in Sicily. In making this the first time, I imagined soaking sliced sponge layers to make a true watermelon cake; or using this instead of raspberry jam in a trifle. This recipe is paraphrased (with apologies) from Nick Malgieri's book: Great Italian Desserts.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Prepare watermelon juice by scooping the meat and removing the seeds; liquefy in blender or food processor (I make extra to chill and drink).
    2. 2
      Stir sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan; add about half the juice stirring until thoroughly combined, then add the rest.
    3. 3
      Cook over moderate heat; stir, scraping the bottom with a wide spatula, occasionally at first, then constantly as it begins to thicken.
    4. 4
      Reduce heat to low when the mixture begins to bubble and continue stirring for 3-5 minutes.
    5. 5
      Pour into a bowl, stirring occasionally, until it reaches room temperature then stir in the vanilla.
    6. 6
      Add the optional ingredients if desired and pour into individual serving cups or a serving dish.
    7. 7
      Chill well before serving (it will thicken to a consistency like Jello as it chills) and serve with whipped cream or cookies if desired.
    8. 8
      If using as a sauce, thin if necessary to the consistency desired with additional watermelon juice.

      Just like my uncles in Brooklyn used to make. I'd give it 10 stars if I could! We throw in semi-sweet chips to look like seeds, and serve it in the watermelon rind. Pictures forthcoming. Once again, thank you! A real treat. :)
