Moving forward, next add in the cubed watermelon rind, making sure the water level completely covers the contents. Place a lid on your bowl and then slide it into the refrigerator to chill overnight. The next morning you will need to drain out the salted water from the bowl, and then place the watermelon rind into a large saucepan.

This process should take roughly forty to fifty minutes. At about the forty minutes marker, you will want to remove the spices and discard them.

Make sure each lid is securely in place before leaving them in storage. We hope you have enjoyed this recipe, be sure to bookmark us so you can return again in the future.
