    Default Barb's Watermelon Pickles

    got a blister peeling and chopping water melon rind for Barb's "the
    Widow Dorothy's" Watermelon pickles today - doing the first 24 hour
    soak in brine now.

    I posted a question the group earlier today but apparently it never
    showed up, so it really doesn't matter much now, but I was wondering
    if any one who has made this recipe did the cold water/salt soak
    before the cook...just curious

    Miz Anne likes watermelon rind pickles, her Mom used to make them.
    Difference is her Mom was feeding two teenage boys and two teenage girls
    plus a toddler and herself and Dad. Waste not, want not was their motto.
    I don't even eat watermelon anymore myself, too sweet for my diabetic
    taste anymore.

    I like the idea of using as much of the melon as possible - to the
    point where if we don't get through the red part fast enough, I'll be
    making jelly
