DirectionsIn a large pot, bring water and salt to a boil over medium high heat. Add the watermelon rind and boil until tender, about 5 minutes or so. Strain & place the rinds in a large stainless steel bowl.In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cider vinegar, peppercorns, cloves, pickling spice and ginger root; stir to blend. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Once the mixture comes to a boil, lower the heat and simmer for 15 minutes, until it's slightly reduced. Pour over watermelon rinds in bowl. Place a plate over the top to keep the rinds submerged in the liquid. Cover and refrigerate for one day. Transfer to a glass jar and store the sealed jar in the refrigerator. These will keep for up to 2 weeks.
