Stickles Recipe

I am looking for a recipe for "Stickles". These are pickles made from the yellow rind of very large cucumbers. The brine has a very nasty odor when cooking, but the pickles are very delicious and very sweet. Thank you to anyone who can help me.

While trying, unsuccessfully as it turns out, to find a recipe for someone at ThriftyFun, I did find this very unusual website:

Uncle Phaedrus Consulting Detective and Finder Of Lost Recipes

They find videos, albums, trivia, books, hard to find items - it's really a fun site. They have a section called 'back of the box recipes', for example. Hope you have as much fun as I did exploring. I love the web; you never know what you're going to find!
