Make Two Nanas Pickled Watermelon Rind

Edited by Maria, Eng

My Mother and Nana created this after my Nana was craving this snack. It is a great way to use the rinds if you cut up a whole watermelon for a picnic. Some recipes call for a 10 day wait however a week is usually sufficient. It is great as a topping for plain yogurt.
