Last august i purchased a jar of watermelon syrup in a grocery store when i was

in Canada. When i asked at the checkout no one had a clue what to do with it.

any body know? is it put on pancakes? For Baking?

it apparently is homeade, in a ball jar, and ingredients are watermelon and sugar.

I think made by Amish.

Whaddya think?

You might be able to make a watermelon ice cream or sorbet with it

I've never heard of it either, but it sounds like something you might just drizzle on pancakes or toast

I second Jason's motion.

It is used to make a drink, mixed with seltzer water.

Some people mix it with lemonade.

You can also add some to a dressing for fruit salad.

The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!" Terry Pratchett

Is it thick or thin?

I vote for using in cocktails... rum, gin, tequila would all be good combos. :cool:

even if thick, you could dilute with something like apple juice and use it to make Watermelon Soup with a scoop of strawberry sorbet, a la Payard.

I like to cook with wine. Sometimes I even add it to the food.

Watermelon mojitos would be fun...it would make summer seem a little bit closer to today.

You could probably make a fun panna cotta with it. Or use it in a soaking syrup on sponge cake. If you wanted to go savory it would be a great base for a marinade or even a ceviche. Spike it with citrus and herbs...

You could also use it as the base for a spicy/sweet compote with chiles or mustard seeds, pickled watermelon rind, whatever fruit you have around and serve it with meats or cheeses.
