Some things just instantly take you back to your childhood. One such is the colourful tutti frutti. I just love tutti frutti. Who doesn’t?
So recently while browsing through youtube I happened to see a video of making tutti frutti from watermelon rind and I was curious to try it out.
So my this weekend project…was making these colourful beauties…best from the waste. I had made from Raw papaya earlier but I found this one better…simply loving it 😋
Leftover watermelon rinds
1 cup sugar
2 cups water
1 tsp vanilla essence
1- Peel the green side of the watermelon skin. Take only the white part and cut it in small pieces.
2 – Boil 2 cups of water and add the pieces to cook in it for around 2/3 mins
Strain the water and keep the cooked rind pieces aside.
3 – Take a pan and add 1 cup sugar along with 2 cups of water. Let the water boil then add vanilla essence and the blanched rind pieces and let them cook for 5 mins.
4 – Take different bowls and divide the pieces. Add desired food colour and let it soak in for a couple of hours. Then remove it and spread it in a plate. Sundry it for 2 days. Your tutti Frutti is ready 😍
If you love tutti frutti, definitely try this out and drop me a comment 🙂
