Watermelon Bowl

Select a large round watermelon (12 to 14 lb.). Cut off thin slice from bottom of melon, then cut off top 1/3 of melon. If desired, use sharp knife to scallop edge of larger watermelon piece. Scoop out fruit from both pieces with melon baller. Invert watermelon shell on paper towels; let stand to drain excess juices before filling with fruited gelatin. Mix desired amount of watermelon with other fruits before adding to gelatin as directed. Reserve remaining watermelon for snacking or another use.


Prepare using 2 pkg. (6 oz. each) of your favorite flavor of regular JELL-O Gelatin, or 4 pkg. (0.3 oz. each) JELL-O Sugar Free Gelatin.

How to Prepare in a Large Oblong Watermelon Bowl (18 to 20 lb.)

Prepare Watermelon Bowl as directed. Prepare fruited gelatin as directed, using 3 pkg. (0.6 oz. each) or 6 pkg. (0.3 oz. each) JELL-O Sugar Free Gelatin and 1-1/2 qt. (6 cups) each boiling water, cold water and assorted fruit. Makes 24 servings.

Fresh Fruits to Avoid in Gelatin Recipes

Since fresh or frozen pineapple, papaya, kiwi, figs, guava and gingerroot all contain enzymes that prevent gelatin from setting, never use them in gelatin recipes. But you can use any canned fruits or juices since the canning process kills this enzyme.
