      Didn't like the texture and the taste wasn't really good. I have had Iraqi watermelon rind jam from the store and it is so yummy. The rind I used was pretty thin, some watermelons do have thicker rind, organic cane sugar, Billy Bee liquid honey, no melon seeds as the watermelon was seedless, freshly squeezed lemon juice, plus the rest of the ingredients. Made for WELCOME TO IRAQ! July 2012
