Kitchen hacks...summer fruit edition

I saw the easiest, tidiest way to slice up a watermelon on YouTube the other day! I wish I had discovered this method years ago, and now I'm going to share it with you. 

Start off by cutting the watermelon in half. Lay one of the halves cut-side down on a cutting board, and with a sharp knife start peeling away the rind like so:



After peeling away all of the green outer rind and all of the white inner part, this is what you have:


Half a peeled watermelon reminds me (uncomfortably) of a brain. Ha!

Next, carefully score the melon with long, one inch slices both horizontally and vertically, holding it all together as you work. It will look something like this:


Now it's time for the magic! Find a bowl roughly the same size as your half melon, and put in down on top of it, like so....


then carefully (with one hand on the bottom of the bowl) flip the cutting board and bowl over and then move the board out of the way....and VOILA!


Perfectly sliced watermelon with almost zero mess! I think each half leaves a couple of tablespoons of juice on the cutting board, and that's all the cleaning you have to do. Is that a neat trick, or what?

I hope you all enjoyed my little "kitchen hack". Let me know if you decide to try it for yourself!

  1. Nice and pretty! Now, what I do is slice the melon in half, get a spoon, and start eating.

  4. My problem with melons is that I am on my own most of the time, and will never manage to eat all of it - also, it won't fit in the fridge unless it is cut to bits. But I love the taste and freshness of watermelon (and I love the jazzy piece "Watermelon Man"!).

    1. I can never finish a whole melon because Gregg doesn't like it. I gave half of this one to Marla and I still had too much!

    1. I like watermelon a lot, but peaches are my favorite summer fruit. There's nothing like a perfectly ripe peach bursting with juice!
