1 cup cubed red watermelon
1 cup cubed yellow watermelon
1 carrot, peeled and sliced intom rounds
1 red bell pepper, sliced into long strips

4 teaspoons peppercorns
1 teaspoon salt

Combine kohlrabi, watermelons, carrot, red bell pepper, ginger, green chili peppers, and raisins together in a large, clean bowl. Transfer mixture to a clean, dry jar with a lid. Set aside.

2  In a small saucepan, stir vinegar, water, sugar, bay leaves, peppercorns, and salt  together. Bring to a boil and let boil for 5 minutes.

3  Pour vinegar mixture into the jar, making sure vegetables are completely submerged in liquid. Allow vegetables to marinate in liquid for at least one day before using. Store in the refrigerator between uses.
