Watermelon Rind Pie

COOK TIME

Southerners sure love food, and they hate to see it go to waste. That's why they make this pie that uses even the rind of the watermelon. I have to say that from the taste, you'd never know this pie was made with the part of the fruit we usually throw away!

What You'll Need

  • 2 (10-ounce) containers watermelon rind pickles, drained and coarsely chopped (see Note)
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 (15-ounce) package folded refrigerated pie crust

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degree F. In a medium-sized bowl, combine all the ingredients except the pie crust; mix well.

  2. Unfold one pie crust and place in a 9-inch pie plate, pressing the crust firmly against the plate. Spoon the watermelon rind mixture into the pie crust, then place the remaining pie crust over the mixture. Trim and pinch the edges together to seal and flute, if desired. Using a sharp knife, cut four 1-inch slits in the top.

  3. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the crust is golden. Serve warm, or allow to cool before serving.

Notes

You'll need about 2 cups of watermelon rind pickles for this recipe.

My grandmother was know to pickle a few watermelon rinds in her day. As little kids, I can remember visiting during the summer and having them with her world famous biscuits. I guess I would have to shop for some watermelon rinds if I would like to make this recipe.

I pickled a lot of watermelon rind preserves for my husband as he is a fan. He typically will consume them, as a breakfast item with toast. Boy, will he be surprised at this dish.

Kroger usually carries rind pickles

wHAT IS WATERMELON RIND PICKLES AND IS THERE A RECIPE FOR THEM OR IS IT THE WHITE PART OF THE WATERMELON JUST CUT UP AND ADDED TO THE PIE CRUST ALONG WITH THE OTHER INGREDIENTS?

IT IS THE WHITE PART VOID OF ANY GREEN. MY MOTHER USE TO MAKE THE PRESERVES INSTEAD OF THE PICKLES. SHE WOULD ADD WHOLE CLOVES TO THE JAR. I HAVE THE RECEIPT SOMEWHERE.
