These may sound strange, but they are very good. My dear Mother-in-law made these all the time. They are made with the pink, sweet part of the watermelon, not the rind. Give them a try, they are easy and delicious!

Watermelon pickles may sound strange to most but not to me. I love them! My Mother-in-Law made them as well, but someone threw out her recipe box when she passed away, so I have never made the pickles myself. I am so thrilled to have found this!!! These are exactly like Mom's .... fantastic and so pretty. Thank you, Leslie! If I could give you 10 stars I would.
