  • Pickled watermelon rind from which all the pink flesh and the green skin has been removed. It is brined (50 g per litre) overnight, drained and rinsed, boiled until soft in vinegar and water (2:1), sugar equal in weight to the rind added plus cinnamon, cloves, root ginger and allspice in a muslin bag and all boiled until the rind is transparent. The rind is then bottled with the reduced syrup and served on the hors d’oeuvre (zakuski) table.
