IS WATERMELON A FRUIT OR A VEGETABLE? Here is some news for you in case you were wondering: Watermelon is a fruit that grows from a seed. It’s also a vegetable as it is a part of the pumpkin family. Watermelon is also harvested in fields like other vegetables!

HOW DO YOU MAKE HOMEMADE WATERMELON RIND JAM? This is a really easy and delicious jam recipe. You don’t even need pectin and it just goes in the fridge when it’s ready. Similar to the prep for our easy pickled watermelon rind: The first step is to peel off the tough green skin, chop up the white remains with some of the pink still on it. Next step is to add this to a large sauce pan with apple pieces, sugar, lemon juice and a little bit of vanilla. It all cooks down to a sticky and lovely mixture.
