Delicious finished pickles!

This is a terrific dessert on a warm night, a delicious accompaniment to grilled food, or a snack right out of the fridge. And, the best part is that it's made from something you usually throw away.

These pickles come from a 1996 copy of Better Homes and Gardens Canning & Preserving recipes. I've experimented with variations over the years, but this is the best!

Ingredients:

• 4 1/2 pounds watermelon rind (enough to make 9 cups)
• 6 cups water
• 1/3 cup pickling salt
• 3 1/2 cups sugar
• 1 1/2 cups white vinegar
• 1 1/2 cups water
• 15 inches cinnamon sticks
• 2 teaspoons whole cloves



Use a vegetable peeler
