Melon jelly wars

So, yesterday saw a new canteloupe enter the lair... ^___^

This time, I used gelatin and I can definitely say, not only is the concept of gelatin icky for this sort of clean fruit dessert, it makes for horrible texture for this sort of dessert. >_<;;

Next melon victim will meet the agar-agar again without question.

The changes this time around:

- 1/2 canteloupe = 350 mL canteloupe juice (pureed in the blender and strained)

The results:
- Icky texture
- canteloupe itself was a good melon, but jelly was a bit strong. Dilute with another lighter melon or juice

The next victim: casava melon... ^___^
