DIRECTIONS

  • Place cantaloupe and sugar in large non-reactive saucepan, stir well, cover, and let set for 6-8 hours.
  • Add lemon juice and pectin and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, while stirring. Continue to stir while the mixture boils for 5-6 minutes, or until it thickens sufficiently.
  • Ladle into hot jars and seal according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Makes 4 ½ Cups.
  • **Note: this is a good way to use up cantaloupe that has a strong flavor, but is not very sweet.
