Today on the news there was a report that the rind of watermelon can have a positive effect on a man’s libido. Kind of like the poor man’s viagra. Giggle. So in honor of this breaking news story today, I have found a recipe for watermelon pickles. No pun intended. This recipe comes courtesy of the Women of Harris, Minnesota Cook Book, circa 1950. This recipe could be blamed in part for the post war Baby boom.

Here is a recipe from my Grandma Hilma’s cook book. It sounds good…I might just try it.
