Ingredients

2 pounds seedless watermelon, sliced 3/4 inch thick
12 pearl onions
3 ears of corn, shucked and kernels cut from the cobs
1 serrano chile, seeded and minced
1/2 pound yellow wax beans
1 large Asian pear—peeled, cored and cut into 1/4-inch-thick wedges
2 cups honeydew melon, cut into 1-inch cubes
4 cups water
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup kosher salt
2 cups rice vinegar
1 large star anise pod


Trim the watermelon slices, removing the green rind and leaving 1/2 inch of the red flesh on 1/2 inch of the white rind.


Cut these pieces into 3/4-inch dice and transfer them to a 1-pint jar.


Bring a saucepan of water to a boil.


Add the onions and cook for 2 minutes.


Drain the onions, peel them and add them to another 1-pint jar with the corn and the chile.


Trim the beans to fit upright in another 1-pint jar.


Pack the pear and honeydew into separate 1-pint jars.


In a saucepan, combine the water, sugar, salt, vinegar and star anise, and bring to a boil.


Simmer for 10 minutes, then discard the star anise.


Return the liquid to a boil and carefully pour it into the jars, filling them to the top.


Close the jars and refrigerate overnight or for up to two weeks.
