3 pounds watermelon
3 cups sugar

Peel and seed the watermelon; dice the flesh. Put one layer of the watermelon into a bowl and add a layer of sugar; continue until all of the watermelon and sugar have been used. Cover the bowl and let it stand in a cool place for 4 hours.

Place this mixture in a preserving kettle and cook over moderate heat, stirring frequently, until mixture is thick, about 45 to 50 minutes.

Skim off foam with a metal spoon, if needed. Ladle into hot, sterilized jars and seal immediately with paraffin wax.
