Pickled Watermelon Rinds
My mother never threw anything away and when it came to summer, watermelons were no exception. Seeds went in the ground for growing and the rinds were pickled!

In a glass bowl stir together the water and salt until the salt has dissolved.

Add the watermelon rinds and any additional water needed to cover them.

Cover the bowl and refrigerate overnight.

Drain the watermelon rinds from the salted water and place into a large saucepan or Dutch oven.

Cover with fresh water then place over high heat and bring to a boil.

Boil rinds for 30 minutes then drain and set aside.
