Lemon Ginger Watermelon Pickles

Postby Shadowgirlau » Fri Nov 27, 2009 4:13 pm

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.

Ingredients:
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

Directions:

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.
Drain.

Preparing Pickles:

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.

Enjoy
Kathleen

Happy to assist Paul and I hope you like them once you have gone to all the trouble to make them.

Am very sorry but still no joy in finding my other recipe. I have a sneaking feeling that this recipe may be on my old computer which I do not have access to at the moment; as have not found it in any of the files or notebooks which I do have unpacked.

Enjoy
Kathleen :)
