Wash the melon before cutting. Then cut it lengthwise into wedges. Remove the seeds and cut the skin off. Cut it into pieces of max 2x2 cm.
Mix the melon with the sugar, honey and star anise. Put this in a sealable container and put it in the refrigerator for +/- 12 hours.
Put the melon mixture and juice in a stew and add a small pinch of salt. Let everything simmer on a low heat for 30 minutes. Dissolve the agar agar in a few tablespoons of water (read packaging) and add it to the mixture. Let it boil for another 2 minutes and turn off the heat.
Make sure your glass jars are clean and sterilized if necessary. (Let them boil togheter with the lids in a pot of water for at least 5 minutes. Remove them from the water with tongs and place them upside down on a clean kitchen towel. Touch only the outside with your hands.)
Fill your jars with the warm mixture. Make sure that there is at least one flower of star anise in each jar. Tighten the lid and let it cool upside down. Once cooled, store in the refrigerator.
