This pickled watermelon rind is a saovry pickle prepared with watermelon rinds. Spiced and seasoned with vinegar, and sugar along with cinnamon, allspice, cloves and mustard, the pickled watermelon rind is one of my favorite mealtime pickles. It can be served with rice or stews and can be stored in the fridge.
