In an effort to be less wasteful, try new things, and continue to keep our pantry stocked, we decided to try watermelon rind preserves. Since we had never had them I made a single batch. I decided that would be enough to try and to be fair, a few jars for a couple of people isn't bad.
I used the recipe from the Ball Bluebook and I was suprised at how easy they are to make.
I think the worst part was peeling the watermelon.
A basic recipe gave me 5 (8 ounce) jars. I put one in the refrigerator for us to sample so I didn't bother canning it.
These will be great over the fall and winter months.
