    The first time that I made them they tasted like squash. They were horrible. The next time they came out perfect. I don't know what I did wrong the first time.

    hmm, that's kind of odd, Maybe you made them perfectly both times and the rind just wasn't any good the first time. I've never had that happen, but I have discovered older jars that got moved into the back of the cupboard that still had big slices of lemon in them and they're so tart your eyeballs roll when you eat them!

    This was one of my Dad's favorites to eat. He always came home from Michigan with them when they went up to visit family. Hard to find this item in Florida. My Mom would make it occasiionaly as well.

    I'm 73 and I remember my mother making these when I was about 10. They are so good, thank you for the recipe.

    I remember my mom having big crocks in the basement. I should still have her recipe. One thing I did learn from a former sister-in-law that lived on a farm. I made a batch of dill pickles the next year and told her that they didn't taste quite the same as when she had taught me. She did mention to me that it makes a difference with the water. The first year we used well water. The next year on my own, I had used city water with clorine and flouride. After that, I was careful to add "non-city water" to my shopping list.

    Tried this over a long weekend I had off from work. These are so awesome. They kind of have that "sweet and sour" sauce flavor to them. Great way to use all the watermelon.

    Hmm I haven't had pickled watermelon in many years. I will need to make some. Approximately how many quart jars per average watermelon?
