Remove the green rind of the melon, and dice the white part into small cubes, leaving the red flesh mostly intact. Remove seeds. In a heavy stockpot, combine 4 cups of the prepared watermelon, sugar and lemons. Bring to a boil over medium heat, and let the mixture boil slowly for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.

Peel off the green part of the watermelon rind, and slice into 2 inch pieces. Soak the rind in a solution of 1 gallon water and 1/2 cup salt overnight. Remove rind from the salt water, and place in a stockpot with clean water to cover. In a large pot, combine the sugar, 8 cups water, and sliced lemons.

How to Make It. Fill a 3-quart pot three-quarters full of water and bring to a boil. Scoop the flesh from the watermelon and reserve for another use. Place the diced rind in a 3-quart pot and add the lemon juice, water, sugar, ginger, and lemon peel.
