“Summer and it's bountifful fruit! This is a great pie to take on a summer outing, picnic or cookout. Now some might think "USE THE RIND??" but yes this is a great way to use all of the watermelon you can! it doesn't take much of it. I prefer to leave out the raisins but hubby wants me to add them next time. He thinks that the pie almost tastes like plums and smells like a apple pie. You will never know that its watermelon rind! Now this recipe doesn't make a FAT slice but rather a thin filled pie, so if you want a fat full pie you will need to increase the filling ingredients. Besides using raisins you could use different dried fruits like cranberries, dates etc. Use what you like”
