Oh MAN, is this stuff GOOD! I looked over several recipes and they were all about the same except for spices. I added 10 whole peppercorns and 10 whole allspice to this recipe, and it is OUTSTANDING! A bit sweet, but still GREAT!
Hi Di Neal; Just finished making your WATERMELON PICKLES, Watermelon Pickles and they turned out super-great. I only had enough watermelon rind for 1/2 the recipe, so it was a samll batch. I made some CRYSTALIZED GINGER 2 days ago and had some syrup left over. I used this and added a bit more sugar and my, but it gave the pickles another flavor. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us. I am going out to buy a 22 to 25 lb. watermelon and will make a nice big batch. "Uncle Bill"
Dibs my dear I made these over a month ago, and just opened my first jar. I wanted a pickle just like the ones my Late DM used to make for the holidays, but she didn't use lemon rind, so I substitued lemon juice instead from one whole lemon. OMG!!! these are sooooo doggone good, and taste exactly like Moms. Thank you for giving me back a great memory, and wonderful pickle I used to love as a child.
