Watermelon Jelly

My children have discovered this jelly.
It is beautiful indeed, and and most yummy!

We get ours from Punta Clara Kitchen in Point Clear, AL
I have found this recipe for us to try our own version.
It seems pretty close!

6 c. watermelon juice
11 c. sugar
2 boxes Sure-Jell
Preparation:To prepare juice, cut 2 to 3 small watermelons into chunks (do not use rind). Mash well in heavy pan. Bring juice to full boil. Strain. Measure 6 cups then combine in a large kettle with the 2 boxes Sure-Jell. Bring to a rolling boil and add sugar (need a large deep kettle for this). Cook until it comes to a full rolling boil that you can't stir down and boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and skim foam. Pour while hot into jars. Place tops on and wait for seal.
