These pickles have a very complex flavor. Everyone at one of our family gatherings just loved them. I will probably make them again. I just need more watermelon rind.

Excellent. I thought i was doing something wrong and wasn't going to have enough liquid to fill the jars with the pickles, but it worked. I omitted the clove/cinnamon in the jar, but added a little extra cinnamon and about 1/8 tsp of nutmeg to the pot while boiling (step #3).

This was my first experience with canning. The watermelon rinds tasted like sweet pickles and the juice had a very nice flavor. The only thing that was unclear to me was whether to use fresh cinnamon and clove in the jar or use the spices in the cooked packet. I used the spices that I prepared for the packet, but next time I will use a fresh cinnamon stick and clove for the jar. This was a good recipe and I will certainly try it again.

First and last time growing watermelons in So Cal. Only got ONE watermelon from a jungle of vines (squirrels got two other ones! #($@) So I was determined to make the very best of that darn melon. This recipe was clear and easy. However, peeling a watermelon resulted in me inventing new swear words. I'm lucky I still have all my fingers. Not a fun process. BUT...the taste of this recipe is delightful. I actually would be willing to use it again on a Farmer's Market organic melon.

It has great potential and probably I did something wrong the first time, but the amount of water & salt seemed very excessive. I cut back by half the second time and ooh-la-la. I agree with an earlier poster - use fresh spices for the canning. I doubled the spices in the jars the second time & added some whole allspice. And I have experimented, adding some pineapple chunks and dried cranberries a few times. Nice. This is *really* is a great base recipe, I've enjoyed it and I can see doing a lot with it as time goes on. Thanks for sharing, Keryne.
