Watermelon Rind Preserves
July 09, 2009

Pretty tasty! Bumped it to 4 stars after I've had time to let the taste of them grow on me. Plus, I think these things are LOADED with fiber! Can't complain in that dept. The rinds are delicately flavored and slightly sweet. There's something earthy about the way they taste...I can't put my finger on it. I didn't use a scale for my preserves (I just eyeballed it) and came up with 3 pints of preserves. The hardest part is just cutting up the rind. There was a lot of left over syrup which is technically just "simple syrup" so you could re-use it for any recipe that calls for that (like ice cream). This was fun and different, thanks!
