I’m a-ready!

7:45 pm: Drain, and then prepare the pickling solution, boil 5 minutes

8:00, and it’s time to add the boiled rind back in, simmer for an hour!

9:00 Now that it has turned translucent, put it in the jars, fill to within 1/2 inch with liquid, and assemble the lids. Boil in the big pot for 20 minutes just to be sure!
