Trim off outer green skin and pink flesh, using only greenish white parts of the Rind. Cut rind into 1 inch cubes. Soak cubes for 3 hours in lime water (2 quarts water and 2 tablespoons lime). Drain and place cubes in Clean water for one hour. Again drain off water and boil 1 hours in fresh water, then drain.

Make syrup of 2 cups sugar and 1 quart water. Add rinds and boil one hour. As syrup thickens, add half lemon, thinly sliced for each pound of fruit. When syrup thickens and melon is clear the preserves are ready. Pack preserves into hot sterilized jars at enough syrup to cover and seal.
