A delicious accompaniment to a good ham is an excellent watermelon pickle. There being so few on the market now, Corti Brothers asked Janet McDonald at The Good Stuff in Sacramento if she would produce for us a good watermelon rind pickle. And she has.
One of the problems nowadays is finding a watermelon with thick enough rind. Janet found some heirloom melons and made a--not tart and not sweet--pickle that I think goes very well with ham, cold meats in general, and especially cold left overs like pork roast and roast chicken. It’s the slightly crunchy texture and the not sweet, not tart, and spice-filled flavor which I personally enjoy. I hope you do too.
