🍉 Watermelon Rind Pickle 👩🏽‍🍳 Ital Cooking In The Khmeribbean Kitchen 🌴

in ASEAN HIVE COMMUNITY • 2 months ago (edited)


After eating watermelon, most people normally throw the rind away, right? If we use them to make pickle, it's good to eat with other things. It’s taste is like cucumber pickle but it’s not the same.

When I have watermelon I always make pickle because I regret throwing away things that we can recycle into food again. My family loves eating this pickle too. This watermelon has a very thick rind, but if the rind is very thin I do not use it.


👩‍🍳 Watermelon Rind Pickle 🔪



  • 1 watermelon's rind
  • fresh chilies as you like
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 3 tbsp salt
  • 4 brown sugar
  • 4 1/2 cups of rice water

You can add some red onion also if you have, but I have not seen red onions for a long time.


This watermelon has a very thick rind and was not a good taste for eating fresh. The price was almost $2.00 USD.


Peel the watermelon skin and cut it like that or as we like. Next arrange it in the jars.


Wash rice for cooking and keep 4 1/2 cups of this rice water. Boil it with salt and brown sugar, then turn off the stove and put slices of garlic chilies. Wait until cool. (You can make it with normal water also if you do not have rice water)


After the water is cool, pour it in the jars and close them.


Keep it two days or until the sour taste comes.


From one watermelon's rind I made three jars. Normally I peel all the green away, but this day I wanted to keep more of the rind.

I wanted to know which one more delicious because some people in my country say do not peel the shell, it’s crispier than a peeled rind. For me it’s delicious the same but peeled rind is easier to eat and gets sour faster than a not peeled rind.


This is after two days, we start to eat it now and I put it in the fridge to keep a long time. Sorry I don’t get pictures of watermelon pickle in the plate to show you because I am so busy I wanted to make easy post today.

Have a great weekend everybody and I hope you are all well everywhere you are. Stay safe 😊❤️.

You have taught me something new my friend. I have been throwing these away all of my life. Thank you for the recipe. I can get watermelon for a good price right now. The thing about watermelon is you have so much to throw away later. I will never throw it again!!!

I happy to hear that from you my friend! Normally, we make pickles young watermelon, I mean it small like apple it's more delicious. We made rind pickle because we regret throwing away. It’s food in the countryside. Thank you 😊

Ok so this is really new to me, I have heard of people making jelly using watermelon rind but this is have never seen or tasted. Watermelon season is over here now but I will try this pickle when we have next watermelong season. Great and innovative work!

La sandía conocida en Venezuela como patilla, es muy rica y la cáscara también la usamos para hacer dulce queda buenísimo parecido al dulce de lechosa.
