Thanks to Chef Loryn Kipp!
This recipe was adapted from one I found in Bon Appetite. I reduced the amount of sugar and increased the pectin a bit. Feel free to adjust the sugar and pectin even more for desired consistency. It is still pretty sweet but cantaloupe is one of my favorite fall produce items, and toast and jam is a favorite snack of mine. Add honey and you have a trifecta!
4 cups coarsely chopped ripe cantaloupe
½ cup sugar
⅓ cup fresh lemon juice
½ cup honey
1 tsp kosher salt
2 tsp powdered pectin
Bring cantaloupe and ¾ water to a boil in a medium saucepan mashing lightly with a potato masher. Add sugar and lemon juice and bring to a boil stirring constantly. Cook, stirring until mixture is thick, 20 minutes or so. Stir in honey and pectin and boil for another 2 minutes. Let cool and put in jars. Keep chilled. Enjoy and bee sure to thank the honey bees!
