      Watermelon Rind Pickles

      This recipe makes 3 pints and requires the rind of one medium watermelon.

      Ingredients

        [*]8 cups prepared rind
        [*]1/2 cup pickling salt (coarse)
        [*]8 cups cold water
        [*]3 cups white granulated sugar
        [*]2 cups white vinegar
        [*]5-6 cinnamon sticks [/list]

        Prepare The Rind
        Remove dark green peel from watermelon. Cut rind into rectangular pieces approximately 1″x2″ until you have 8 cups of rind strips. Layer rind and salt in a stainless steel bowl or pickling crock.

        Soak 12 hours.
        Drain and rinse twice in cold water, then place rind and 8 cups cold water into a stainless steel saucepan and boil until fork tender (10 minutes). Drain again.

        Prepare The Solution
        Combine sugar, vinegar and broken cinnamon sticks in a saucepan and bring to a boil, reduce heat but keep at a slow boil for one hour.

        And Can
        Immerse glass mason jars in boiling water for 10 minutes. If using self-sealing lids boil as well for 5 minutes. Into hot (now sterilized) jars distribute rind strips and add pickling solution to within 1″ of jar top.

        Wipe jar rim before securing lids.

        Shelf Life
        Store jars in a cool, dark place and let set for 6-8 weeks before opening. Consume within 8 months.
