  • To prepare watermelon rind - trim green skin and pink flesh from thick watermelon rind; cut into 1-inch pieces. Dissolve salt in 1 quart water and pour over rind. Let stand 5 to 6 hours if salt is used. Drain; rinse and drain again. Cover with cold water and let stand 30 minutes. Drain.
  • Sprinkle ginger over rind; cover with water and cook until fork-tender. Drain. Combine sugar, lemon juice and 7 cups water. Boil 5 minutes. Add rind and boil gently for 30 minutes. Add sliced lemon and cook until the melon rind is clear.
  • Pack, boiling hot, into hot Ball jars, leaving 1/4 inch head space. Adjust caps. Process half pints and pints 20 minutes at 180 - 250 degrees F in hot water bath.
