  2. In a separate bowl, combine the water and gelatine. Add the lemon juice and sugar, and stir until fully dissolved.
  3. Puree the watermelon flesh in a blender. Add to the gelatine mixture and give it a good stir.
  4. Pour the jelly into the hollowed out watermelon shells. Refrigerate overnight or until set. Serve with a sprinkling of chopped mint leaves.
