CONDIMENTS: Watermelon Rind Condiment

Here’s a novel way to make use of those otherwise discarded watermelon rinds.
One of the principles of macrobiotics is “no waste.” This recipe let’s us put it into action.

2 cups diced watermelon rind (white part with the outside skin trimmed off)

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1 tablespoon barley miso (or to taste)

1.  Cut away the outer green skin of the watermelon.  Dice the white part into 1/2″ cubes.

2.  Warm the oil in a cast iron skillet.

3.  Add the watermelon rind.  Saute 2-3 minutes over medium high flame.

4.  Add miso.  Mix in until the miso melts.

5.  Cover pot with a lid and cook until the watermelon rinds are semi soft.

6.  Serve as a condiment for grain, bread, or pasta.
