How it's done

Watermelon ice cubes

Cut the melon into cubes, tear off the peppermint leaves.

Divide the melon and peppermint leaves between the ice cube moulds, fill with water, cover and freeze for approx. 2 hrs.

Squeeze the juice from the lime, cut the melon into cubes.

Bring the water and lime juice to the boil with the watermelon. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for approx. 30 mins., leave to infuse on the switched-off hob for approx. 10 mins., puree.

While still boiling hot, ladle the syrup into the prepared jars and fill to just below the rim, seal immediately, leave to cool.
