You know it’s spring and summer is coming when you begin to see watermelons at the local fruit market. In my opinion it’s the best in the melon family. I give myself an A+ for picking the perfect watermelon and a F- when it comes to cutting it. A combination of size, odd shape and the incorrect knife are all contributors to the failure. The old saying is true…practice makes perfect. Today I am sharing with you my basic steps to cutting a watermelon.
- Cutting board
- Knife (chef or serrated bread knife)
- A few days before, wash your watermelon with mild dish detergent and rinse thoroughly (removing all the pesticides). Let air dry.
- Cut off both ends of the watermelon. This creates a stable surface to stand watermelon upright.
