pickelsThat’s right, watermelon rind pickles are this month’s featured product and prize. What are watermelon rind pickles, you ask? They’re exactly what they sound like – bits of watermelon rind pickled in a very sweet and sometimes spicy brine.

These particular watermelon rind pickles are made by New Braunfels Smokehouse and will be delivered to the winner in a 21-ounce jar. The website describes the rinds thusly: “Reminiscent of that childhood summer spent at grandma’s, these crisp watermelon rind pickles radiate with rich translucence and sweet, heavenly flavor.

It should be noted that the folks at New Braunfels Smokehouse know a thing or two about pickling things. They also offer pickled okra and squash pickles, in addition to a vast assortment of smoked meats, of course.

Honestly, I’ve never had watermelon rind pickles, but I’m dying to try them, so if you win this prize, you have to email me and let me know how they are.
