This is the third and final conclusion of how to make watermelon rind pickles.
Place lids on to warm. This recipe made 9 and 1/2 pints for me.
Place jars in water bath water to warm.
Remove spices from your watermelon rind which has soaked overnight in refrigerator.
Place in non reactive pot on stove and bring to boil. Boil for about 25 minutes or until rind is translucent.
Pour hot rind into hot jars leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Remove any bubbles and wipe rims to remove any residue.
Place hot clean lids and rings on clean rims and finger tighten only.
Process in boiling hot water bath for 5 minutes only. Remove from boiling water and allow to cool. As the jars cool they should ping to seal. Allow to cool over night and then remove rings, wipe down jars and store in a cool dry area.
Let stand for atleast a month before eating.
