Ingredients

  • 6

    c. watermelon rind, diced

  • 4 1/2

    c. sugar (approximate)

  • 1

    lemon, thinlly sliced and seeded

  • 1

    tsp Allspice (optional)

Directions

Once you have served your watermelon, save the rinds in the frig until you are ready to prepare the preserves. Peel the green outer skin off the melon, leave a little of the red pulp on the rind. Slice the rind into narrow, 1/4 inch wide slices, then slice those into 1/4 inch cubes. Place rind in a large pot and cover with all of the sugar. Cover until the fruit doesn't show. Cover with plastic wrap. Put it in the frig overnight; this draws the juices out of the rind. Place pot on stove and add lemon slices and allspice, if desired. Boil mixture slowly until rind is clear, about 2 hours. Place in sterile jars and seal tightly. Serve on buttered toast.
