Watermelon Rind Preserves

This is an old-fashioned recipe and a wonderful way to reduce food waste. Watermelon rind preserves are not like traditional preserves that you buy in a grocery store. They are more like candied watermelon pieces in a cinnamon-spiced syrup. The watermelon pieces can be eaten plain or stirred into cakes and cookies, as you would use candied cherries, pineapple or citrus peel. Spoon the sweet syrup over warm buttered biscuits or stir it into hot or iced tea for sweetness. —Peggy Woodward, Shullsburg, Wisconsin
