Watermelon Rind Pickles. Actually my mom, who told me two let them pickle two weeks, has been asking too - she says she just just made that "two weeks" up. But couldn't bring myself to open them early for fear they wouldn't be as good as my memory of them.
I don't know if the two weeks made any difference, but they didn't disappoint! I didn't think Zack would like them - they are a bit spicy (about the level of red hots). I certainly didn't intend to feed Sammy any. But then Zack made such a show oooh-ing about how "good-y" they were that Sammy went a little nuts insisting on having some too. They both loved them!
And so do I.
