- Put the melon in a deep pan with the sugar, lemon rind and juice.
* Add a dash of cinnamon! *
- Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. boil it for 3 minutes!
- If the melon should remain “whole” you can whip it a bit with the immersion blender.
** test the density of the jam, if is too thin (liquid), boil a few minutes more.**

jars with a cloth, let them cool in a dry place away from light for 24 hours.
