How to carve a watermelon for your next summer BBQ...11:20 AMAshley Jackson
So last week I went to a bbq and my husband told me the night before we were to bring dessert. Well I didn't have time to get to the store, but I had a watermelon in the fridge so I decided IT was going to be dessert and I wanted to jazz it up a bit by carving it.
I love all things artistic and especially where you can work on something that you mess up until it looks right, ha ha! So this is how I did it....
You take a watermelon
Draw your desired design on it
Mine was not that pretty, ha ha
I used a pairing knife to begin carving on both sides of the line I had drawn, not going very deep, and removing that skin
I then left a half an inch and cut all the way through along the design to remove the top of the watermelon.
I then used an ice cream scoop to remove all the watermelon. (A melon baller would probably be a better more beautiful option, but this is what I had)
I then cut up all the watermelon into chunks and replaced it back into the rind.
I kept the top as the lid and took it off when we got to the BBQ!
That is it!
It took some time, but I enjoyed it.
What do you all think?
