Susan's Pink Watermelon Pickles (Not Rind)

"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!"

    My Mother still makes these just like my Grandmother did in North Dakota. I love these. They are bright, colorful and always come out on special occasions. I have to find her recipe. Somehow I think there is a clove in there.

    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.

    Made these as you directed. Won't be opening these for 6 weeks, so will post review now, and edit once we have tasted them. This is an easy recipe and certainly one beginners should try.
