Believe me, there are many kinds made from cucumbers. Although one of my favorite kinds of pickle is the watermelon, cutting off the rind, boiled with spices added, making a spice-like or should I say a spicy pickle? Then again, this kind of pickle can be made with the red part of the watermelon. Kay Morehead from Fargo, gave to me this watermelon pickle recipe which I am anxious to try, using most of the red or "meat like" part. Here is Kay's recipe alqng with others. Pickled Watermelon Bring to a boil 1 gal. Water • 2 C. vinegar • 1 1/2 C. sugar • 8 Tbs. salt Wrap the following in cheese cloth and put in the boiling water for 3 to 4 minutes. 1 tsp. allspice • 1 small dry red pepper • I bay leaf Put a bunch or head of dill in each jar, fill with watermelon chunks (red too) using mostly the meat of the melon. Add 2 little slices of green pepper and '/2 of a garlic toe. Pour hot juice over each jar and seal. Set jars in a hot-water bath until water cools. Remove and let jars set overnight. Then put in refrigerator, keeping them there until all is eaten. Thanks Kay. Watermelon Pickles (Takes 3 days to make) 7 lbs Watermelon rind • (Saltwater '/4 c. to 1 qt. water) • 2 C. white vinegar • ½ tsp. oil of cloves • ½ tsp oil of cinnamon • Red food coloring (optional) Use firm watermelon rind. Trim off dark green skin and pink section. Cut into 1 inch cubes and soak for 2 hours in saltwater. Drain; rinse and cover in cold water, bring to a boil; cook until tender, but not soft (about 10 minutes) Drain. Combine sugar, vinegar and spices, heat to boiling. Add color if desired. Pour over rind in a large glass bowl and let stand overnight at room temperature, covered with waxed paper. In the morning drain off syrup, heat to boiling and pour back over rind. Let stand overnight. On the third morning, heat rind in syrup, seal_in hot sterilized jars. Makes 8 pints. Watermelon Syrup (This is a special t rea,t on waffles or pancakes) 1 ripe watermelon • ½ C. sugar Cut watermelon in half; scrape the pulp from rind. Press the pulp through strainer or colander. Measure 1 gallon puree into kettle. Add sugar, stirring until dissolved. Bring to boil; cook 25 minutes, skimming often. Continue cooking until mixture is thick and clear. (This does take time; but it is worth it) Pour into sterilized jar and seal at once. Until next time. "Dell" PRCEF GRANT FROM PAGE 1 thll.
