  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/3 cup pomegranate syrup
  • 1/3 cup water


Heat ginger, sugar, vinegar, syrup, and water briefly to dissolve sugar. Allow to cool. Pour over watermelon rind and let marinate for several hours. Serve in small dishes as a refreshing side. Garnish with a piece of crystallized ginger, if desired.
