I bought a delicious moon & stars watermelon from the farmer's market for a Labor Day BBQ, and since I cut the watermelon off the rind before serving, I decided to make rind pickles with them. Last night I made the pickling solution and upon filling my sterilized 1 quart jar (these are quick pickles so they're safe for this jar) with solution as high as I thought it could go, after a few hours I noticed the brine was no longer covering the rind pieces. I guess the rinds absorbed quite a bit of the solution.
Should I make up some more pickling solution to top it off right away, or should I just remove (eat) some of the pickles and hope the solution remains at the same level? Any advice is appreciated!
