See viewtopic.php?f=9&t=532 for details on fruit added... Things did not work out as planned, but I'll be repeating this recipe with pasteurised watermelon. Unlikely to make the competition now, but I'll enter the Popcorn Blonde instead :D

Was done with campden as per advice from elsewhere; smell has gone today, so might be ok after all.
