Yes, we have more than one recipe for watermelon pickles. Today’s is from Auntie Fish or Tish. I have never had watermelon pickles, have you? When I turned the card over to see if there were more instructions I found another recipe for watermelon pickles, which I will post tomorrow.
Watermelon Pickles (Auntie Fish)
Peel one watermelon and cut rind in pieces
Put on to cook in boiling salted water until clear (keep cover on kettle)
Drain over night
Cook 8 c white sugar with 4 c vinegar (white), 4 tbsp whole cloves in a bag, 4 tbsp stick cinnamon
Boil syrup until it is a little thick (about 1/2 hour)
Put melon in, simmer about 20 min
I’ve heard of watermelon pickles but didn’t know how they were made. Knowing how doesn’t make them sound tasty. Have to wait for watermelon season I guess.
I have heard of them..but I have never tried them. Happy Easter!:)
You would not think that so much flavor could be in the rind. But crack open a jar of these in the middle of winter (or any other time) to get a taste of summer. They are amazing.
