... Name just wouldn't be the same. I have fond memories from childhood of eating watermelon rind pickles when visiting the farm tables of family in the mid west while on summer vacation.
Today I ventured back in time and made a batch of sweet watermelon rind pickles ... just in time to enjoy when my folks are in town for a visit. My Pop will think he's back at his boyhood home as I'm sure his mother made these. The recipe is from the Ball Blue Book of Preserving. I cut the recipe in half ... getting 6 half-pints. Do you have a favorite unusual pickle?
