Watermelon Rind Pickles ! Recipe

Pleasantly surprise your loved ones with a piece of watermelon rind prepared as a pickle, crispy, juicy and with a special sour taste that will perfectly complement many dishes.

In addition to the rest of the winter food, prepare a few jars of watermelon while it’s still watermelon season.

Definitely, fast preparation in only 15 minutes, and please use sterile jars if you want to keep it for a longer period almost per year.

Necessary spices that complement this pickle nicely are dry dill, chili flakes that can be spicy in taste, bay leaf and red peppercorns. You can also add black peppercorns as a substitute for red peppercorns, half a teaspoon is enough.

White vinegar or 9% is needed to prepare the liquid with which you will cover the slices, and for sure, without adding preservatives or grapevine, it is enough just to boil the liquid.

Thinly cut the watermelon rind into thin long strips and if there is a damaged part on the surface, remove it.  You can prepare the pickle with the peel or without. After cutting thin slices, arrange the pieces lengthwise in the jars.

Sterilize the jars at 100 degrees for 15 minutes. Wash them and leave them in the oven so they don’t touch so they don’t burst, and during that period cut the crust.  Then arrange the watermelon slices in the jars.

 Preparation of Liquid – Ingredients

 1 liter of water

 50 grams of salt

 25 grams of sugar

 250 ml of white vinegar (9%)

 1 tbsp.  dry dill

 1 tbsp.  chili snowflakes

 1 tbsp.  red peppercorns

 Bay leaf

 dry chili peppers

Mix all the ingredients together with the spices and let them to boil. Fill the jars with the liquid, close them immediately while they are hot and turn them upside down to vacuum.  If you have a suspicious jar, you can boil it for 10 minutes in a pot of water.  Let them cool to room temperature.


The pickles are ready for tasting after one week to two weeks. One of my favorite ways to taste it is with Macedonian style baked beans, and of course you choose according to your taste 🙂
