Pickles....

Recommended Posts

Anybody ever pickled watermelon rind? Wife says her grandmother used to pickle it. Again, probably the depression, etc. you wasted nothing. I may dig up a recipe and try it.  

I love corn relish too, but again, I'm the only one who would eat it.

Heard of pickled w-melon but never had it.  Probably is good.

My appetite does hold a very fond place for pickled green tomatoes.  The crisper-er and crunchy-er the better.

For a special taste less treat, there are also water melon preserves.  In the old days every thing on a farm had to be saved to get us through the long, harsh, poor times, winter season.  Some of it was more eatable  than others.  Never did develop a taste for some of the out yonder specialties.  Coon or  possum stew is not high on my food list.

Corn relish sounds awesome!

I'd probably like pickled watermelon rind if I ever had it, but I wonder if dill pickle spears are about the same thing.

Good friend use to pickle red beets and the tops all the time and always the beet tops where the first to go. From personal experience. Man I miss those days.

Grandmother passed down recipes to Mother and down to wife. Watermelon rind, beets and pickles all very good. Had a neighbor that would pickle Northern Pike. It was pretty good in small quantities with beer.

Pickled watermelon rind is a PA Dutch staple.  While I don't care for it myself, it is fairly easy to find around here.

Whenever there is a fundraiser with food at auction, my wife will donate a few jars of pickled beets. Always brings top dollar. She has a following (hands them out a little too freely in my opinion😄) and I'm lucky to have any left by the time the new garden goes in. 😂

Oh, and pickled green beans too. Very good.

Southern turnip greens do often have some vinegar in them.

If you pickle beets, don't skimp on the cloves.
