Have you been hacking at your watermelon for years? I have! Actually, I am a little scared of cutting watermelons – I feel like it’s dangerous – because the first slice is so difficult.
BUT last summer my sister Kristen taught me this really neat way to cut up a watermelon quite easily! I shared it with a few of my friends this week and when I saw the amazement in their eyes – I thought what a typical blogger thinks – I better blog about this! I thought everyone but me already knew this trick.
So I’m compelled to share it with you all since there will be lots of picnics this weekend for the 4th of July – you can offer to bring the watermelon!
Here’s How to Cut a Watermelon:
Step #2 Take one of the quarters and slice it with your knife straight down in rows.
Step #3 Now take your knife along the side and slice it long ways making squares on that side.
Step #5 Slice along the rind while not letting the squares fall off. Then lift your watermelon over the bowl and let the pieces slide off into beautiful squares in your bowl!
Walk with the King!
