How To Cut A Watermelon

3 years ago

Yummy watermelon! With Memorial Day and 4th of July just around the corner you're bound to be cutting up a watermelon before you know it! I used to dread cutting up a watermelon and I would usually wait at least a week to cut it up because it was so much work. That was until last year when I learned how to cut a watermelon! If you like to eat watermelon the traditional way (triangle style) this tutorial probably isn't for you. However, if you eat it with a fork you may find this trick helpful :)

1. Start by cutting off both ends of the watermelon so each end is flat. Once it is done you can put one of the flat sides down and you're ready to continue cutting!

2. Now you can cut down each of the sides until all of the rind is gone! Be sure to follow the curve of the watermelon so you don't waste any.

3. Once all the rind is completely gone it should look like this.

4. Next, slice the watermelon into lengthwise slices.

5. Last but not least, cut each slice into smaller square shaped chunks and place everything in a Tupperware.

Just writing this is making my mouth water! We gave Odette watermelon for the first time and she absolutely loves it! I told my husband now we have three watermelon lovers in the house fighting over it! Hope you found this helpful for the next time you cut up a watermelon :)
