Watermelon pickles have long been the go-to recipe for repurposing the stiff, white rinds, but if you’re looking to mix it up, watermelon rind jam is an even easier way to transform them into something delicious. Here’s how it’s done.

Using only three ingredients (rind, sugar and limes), some overnight macerating, and a bit of heat, this recipe (linked below) transforms the most flavourless part of the watermelon into a sticky, candy-like jam with tons of depth.

Not only do you now have a delicious spread for your morning toast (or topping for summery sorbet) but you’re ensuring that the only part of the melon heading to the compost pile is the bitter green peel.
