Paul this is for you as promised. I really like these but then I love lemon and ginger. I do have another watermelon rind recipe but as yet have not been able to find it. Sorry it has taken me so long to find and post this one.
6 cups prepared watermelon rind
4 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground ginger
4 cups sugar
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup thinly sliced lemon
Preparing the Rind:
Trim the green skin and pink flesh from the rind.
Cut into inch pieces.
Dissolve the salt in 8 cups of water and pour over the rind.
Let stand 5 to 6 hours. Drain, rinse and drain again.
Cover with cold water and let stand 30 minutes.
Drain. Sprinkle the ginger over the rind; cover with water and cook
until fork tender.
Combine the sugar, lemon juice and 6 cups water in a large pot or
Dutch oven. Boil for 5 minutes.
Add the rind and boil gently for 30 minutes or until syrup thickens.
Add sliced lemon and cook until the rind is transparent.
Pack hot into hot jars, leaving 1/2 inch head space. Remove air
bubbles. Adjust caps. Process 20 minutes in boiling water bath.
These are an excellent! T&T recipe which was shared on one of the preserving groups that I have been a member of.
