Not that good. Fairly weird with too many spices and not enough fruit-flavor. Note: Be sure to peel the green rind off of the whiter part before boiling.

Thanks for the memories. My grandmother use to make these and I had never seen a recipe to try. She just us to make them and had never written the recipe down. The minute I tasted the preserves I went back in time. I followed your recipe I did have to cook a little longer. I sent some to my sisters and they had the same reaction. These are going to my Mom as a gift for Mother's Day and her birthday, along with some other baked goods, which will include bread to put these delicious preserves on. These will make her day, it sure did mine. I will keep this recipe to make every year. Thank you.

This was a very good and helpful recipe just in time for Easter. My sister brought a watermelon in with her and I put the left-overs to good use. The only thing I did different was to reduce the sugar by 1/4 cup and replace it with 1/4 cup of red sugar crystals. It added color and got rid of my extras from Valentine's day baking.

This is a good recipe for what has become an old favorite in my family. The only thing we do differently is to drop the food coloring in at the end. We dye half the jars red and half green. We also throw in thinly sliced lemons at the bottom of the jars. These are delicious sweet pickles.
