I thought this unbelievable when I first saw it but its worth making.   Contains a large rockmelon, sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon stick.  You only get two smallish jars when rockmelons are cheap I will at least double it.  I dont have a canning kit I simply put it in clean jars and keep it in the fridge.  Would be wonderful on damper with dollop cream.

I only heated mine to 200 not the 230 and its firm enough for me.  Recipe and pictures of the steps are here:

Looks delicous Carolyn

Today must be memory day.  First the old bakers oven, now this melon jam.  Mum made lots of melon jams, but not cantelope jam.  The recipe and result is very similar to her jams made with what they called jam melons.  Melon and lemon and also a melon and pineapple jam were always in our cupboard. 
What a job cooking the jams in a weatherboard house with tin roof over the fuel stove in the summer when fruit was economical to buy...
