Candied Watermelon RindFrom jo_jo_ba 3 years ago
- 4 cups watermelon rind, green parts peeled off and remainder diced (23.2 oz prepared) shopping list
- 2 cups sugar shopping list
- zest of 2 lemons shopping list
- 1/3 cup lemon juice shopping list
- 2 tbsp vanilla shopping list
- 1 tsp cinnamon shopping list
- 8 cardamom pods shopping list
- 6 Schezuan peppercorns shopping list
How to make it
- Place watermelon rind in a deep pot and add the sugar.
- Cover and let stand at room temperature overnight (at least 4 hours) to macerate.
- In the morning, bring to a simmer, stirring to thoroughly dissolve the sugar.
- Add the remaining ingredients, cover and simmer for 2 1/2 hours. Cubes will be translucent when done.
- Uncover and bring to a boil. Cook for 30 minutes, stirring often, to reduce the syrup to a thick caramel-like liquid.
- While still hot, ladle into sterilized jars and process in a waterbath for 30 minutes (the original calls for turning the jars upside down for a minute to create a seal but to correlate with the US safety guidelines I suggest waterbath canning for shelf-storage. If you’re keeping it in the fridge, skip this part!).
