Don't throw away that watermelon rind! Save it for my pickles! Just have your washed watermelon cut into one inch wide slices and serve only the pulp, cutting the rind into one inch squares (or if you are ambitious, different shapes). Squares are easiest. Make sure you peel the rind and trim it of most of the pink. I like the seedless watermelons because the rind is nicer but any watermelon rind will do. This pickle is done in easy stages over three days. I knew the recipe was fantabulous when one of my friends drove home with a pint jar on the seat of her car, ate all of the pickles and drank the syrup before she got home and then called me begging for more. I hope you try this recipe now that picnic season has arrived and watermelons abound. Canning is not hard, you just have to follow the directions perfectly. It is a fun and rewarding kitchen hobby and you will have so many complements when you give a home-canned item as a gift. Make sure you read through the recipe before you begin. If you have any leftover syrup just can it along with the pickles. If you have any questions just Z-mail me!
