So last year I posted a recipe for Watermelon Rind Soup, and someone commented that they used watermelon rind to make pie. That sounded like a fantastic idea and I knew I'd have to give it a try when I got a chance. Well it's watermelon season again and I tried it!
And the verdict is that pie is a very, very good way to make use of watermelon rinds. It's super frugal and watermelon rinds are actually good for you (see the above recipe for rind soup for more info), so you can totally justify eating pie for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
As I've said elsewhere, I'm allergic to a lot of raw fruits and veggies, and I can't really have raw melons. I can, however, have them cooked. When raw they make my mouth itch, and my skin itches when I handle them, so I usually have to use gloves for this.
