Pickling Watermelon Rind and Icicle Pickles

About this Cook
I have been cooking ever since I could hold a spoon and it just keeps getting better.
My favorite things to cook
New recipes have to "sound" good to my palate, but I have occasionally been convinced to try something that seems like a totally weird combination. Like beer and chocolate.
My cooking triumphs
I have had to change cooking methods several times during the past few years to keep up with changing dietary needs. From low cholesterol to high fiber to wheat free, it has been a challenge.
My cooking tragedies
I have ruined the most simple, one-pot-meal recipe and had to discard it. No one could eat it.

The Best Thai Coconut Soup
Getting ready to make it again, but with chicken and chunks of tomato. It is better than what we have had in several Thai restaurants! We also serve it over/with Thai style rice noodles which gives us a more authentic experience. Thank you for this wonderful rendition of a favorite dish :)

Eight-Day Icicle Pickles
My cucumbers have been very bitter this year and I hated to waste them all to the compost heap so I tried your recipe in the hope of salvaging them. Now that they are canned and cooling on the counter, I am prepping for the next batch to which I plan to add some hot peppers for a little zest. Not only did your recipe eliminate the bitterness, the pickles are yummy! I am a little bummed because all my jars sealed so I won't be putting a dud in the fridge to snack on. I need more jars :)
