DIRECTIONS

  • To prepare the melon, use a spoon to scrape away all the pink.
  • Cut away the rind with a knife (this is fastest if you cut the melon into 3-inch squares).
  • Cut rind into strips, cubes, or chunks.
  • Layer the MELON and onion with salt in a large bowl; cover with ice cubes.
  • Let stand 1 1/2 hours.
  • Drain and rinse.
  • Combine remaining ingredients in a large pan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • Add the MELON and onions and return to a boil.
  • Pack hot PICKLES into hot, sterile jars, leaving 1/4-inch head space.
  • Fit with lids.
  • Process in boiling water for 10 minutes.
