How to Make Harvest Watermelon Pie by Cindy Strawser

Step-by-Step

  1. Directions
    •Place watermelon rind in a saucepan and cover with water; bring to a
    boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until the
    rind is tender and translucent. Remove from the heat; drain. Place
    in a large bowl; add the cranberries, walnuts and vinegar.

    •Combine sugar, pie spice, flour and salt; add to rind mixture and
    stir well. Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom pastry; trim the
    pastry even with edge. Add filling.

    •Roll out remaining pastry; make a lattice crust. Seal and flute edges. Cover edges loosely with foil. Bake at 425° for 20
    minutes. Remove foil; bake 20-25 minutes longer or until crust is
    golden brown.

    •Combine glaze ingredients; spoon over hot pie. Cool on a wire rack.
    Yield: 6-8 servings.

    "This recipe is a great use for watermelon rind. Usually you don't use that part at all but it is so full of flavor! It makes a truly unique pie".-—Lorri O'Reilly, Orlando, Florida
