1kg of watermelon (the red part only)
400 g of sugar
100 g of honey
1 stalk Pelargonium Graveolens
The juice of 1/2 lemon
Cut the flesh of the watermelon into cubes and remove the pips. Put the watermelon and honey in the saucepan and let it boil over moderate heat for about 30 minutes. When it has boiled for 20 minutes, put a little syrup on a platter and let it cool to see if it sets. If necessary, keep boiling until the syrup does set. Shortly before turning the heat off, add the lemon juice and the Pelargonium Graveolens. Let it release its aroma for 10 minutes and then throw it away. Let the watermelon sit for 2-3 hours. If after this time it still has juices, boil it again for 10-15 minutes or as long as necessary.
