Making pickled watermelon rind

I adore this stuff. Definitely one of those things that this Yankee-ish person scoffed at when she arrived south of the Mason-Dixon, but was certainly willing to try. And my sweet tooth was never happier with that first wonderful bite. Ahhh...

So, I happened to make a watermelon salad yesterday (watermelon, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, tabasco and mint with optional feta and/or onions and/or olives; very tasty!) and now I have all this rind that I almost put in the trash. And then realized I could pickle it. Yay!

So, I'm doing that today. I've found some recipes and will likely start with those. But, if anyone has a time-tested recipe or hints for the process, do let me know as I always like some pointers on something I've never made before. Otherwise, I'll start with the basic recipes I've found and tweak over time as I learn, I'm sure.
