    GrandmaIsCooking's Note:

    --Adopted Recipe-- I used to make watermelon rind pickle, but my recipe is in the group of my recipes that is "hiding" from me. I will try to figure out how much rind, but I am guessing it is the peeled rind of one melon, and have changed the directions to reflect this. I have also added the step of soaking overnight in salt water. Amount of salt is approximate, but I never made any kind of pickle without any salt, as this recipe originally was written. Everything in this recipe is subject to change when I find my recipe. I have simply made some changes to try to make the recipe a little clearer, because I don't want someone to waste time and ingredients on a recipe that really seemed to be missing some ingredients and some steps. Preparation time includes standing time.

      Lots discoveries working this recipe! The results are sorta like chewing the meat off a bone! It's Southern comfort finger food to suck the meat (the white part between the red and the green) from the rind. (BTW I wear dentures) The amt of spices was huge,yet worked perfectly. The "sauce" is to die for! and I saved all extras for other sauce uses. I think use of brown sugar was significant. I'm still perfecting the right vinegar blend, as pure apple cider vinegar can impart a dominant flavor.
