The Easiest Way to Cut Watermelon
It can be so easy to get sucked into all the kitchen gadgets we have these days. Melon baller, melon slicer, melon blender, melon dicer. Personally, all I need is a quality knife, a cutting board, and a bowl to serve up perfectly cubed watermelon!
I prefer this cutting board with a well surrounding the edges. This helps to keep the watermelon juice from flowing overboard onto your work surface.
Now that you have the proper tools that are commonly found in the kitchen, I wanted to share three simple ways to cut watermelon.
My Favorite Simple Kitchen Tools
My method for cubing watermelon is so simple and creates the least amount of mess possible. By slicing the watermelon flesh all contained within the rind, it is easier to contain the juice and transfer the flesh into a bowl. No more scooping and sloshing!
Watch my YouTube video for the full tutorial!
Start by cutting your watermelon into eighths. Once you have those perfect wedges, simply slice the watermelon into handheld sized slices. Place on a platter and serve for an easy hand-held party snack!
If you want to create a slightly more classy look to serve your watermelon, try an ice cream scooper! This will create larger watermelon balls. Note: These will not be quite as pretty as a watermelon baller could create. However, for those of us who don’t want to add more rarely-used tools to our kitchen, an ice cream scoop does the trick!
I hope that these three simple ways to prepare your watermelon are helpful! I love simple and sweet and there is nothing easier than serving watermelon as is.
