6 cup  watermelon rind, diced
4-1/2 cup  sugar
1   lemon, sliced thinly, then seeded
1 tsp  allspice (optional)
peel green skin off the watermelon, but leave a little of the red pulp on 
rind. cut into 1-inch slices, then slice into 1-inch cubes. place rind in 
a large pot and cover with the sugar. (bavilacqua's mother always said to 
cover it until the fruit doesn't show.) cover with plastic wrap; 
refrigerate overnight. this draws out the juices.. place pot on stove and 
add lemon slices and allspice, if desired. boil whole mixture until rind 
is clear, about 2 hours. pack into clean, hot jars. wipe rims and screw on 
lids. process 10 minutes in boiling water deep enough to cover lids by at 
least 1 inch. serve the preserves on buttered toast, if desired. note: 
after cutting watermelon, save the rind in the refrigerator until you are 
ready to prepare the preserves.

9 cup  sugar

select watermelons with thick rinds. cut off all green skin and pink

water. soak rind in pickling lime water to cover, about 3 1/2 hours. rinse 
several times with cold water. continue rinsing until the water runs 
clear, then at least one more time to remove all traces of lime. cover 
with additional water and cook until tender. drain well. make a syrup of 
sugar with 8 cups water. add lemons. tie the cinnamon and cloves into a 
piece of cheesecloth and add to syrup. let boil 5 minutes. remove lemon 
slices, add melon rind to syrup and cook until transparent. remove 
spices. skim off foam. let stand overnight or until cold to plump fruit. 
stir occasionally. reheat slices in syrup until boiling. pack into hot 
jars to within 1/2 inch of top. wipe tops of jars clean and seal. process 
for 15 minutes in boiling water deep enough to cover the lids by at least
