There’s nothing that says more ‘summer’ than a watermelon. this amazing fruit is the perfect healthy refreshment for hot summer days. In fact, nothing quenches thirst and hydrates the body like a nice, preferably cooled, piece of watermelon. And, this is for a reason. This food, or better say, super food, is abundant in healthy nutrients, antioxidants, and vitamins, all of which boost your health on many different levels.
Now, most people cut watermelons in the traditional crescent shape. But, as you already know, cutting watermelon in this way creates a lot of mess.
You can also opt for watermelon cubes or little skewers, but this is both time-consuming and rather unsafe for young children.
Plus, the watermelon is high in water, which makes your picnic table or porch an oasis for summer pests like ants, flies, wasps, and other bugs.
The video below will teach you how to cut a watermelon without soaking everything around in watermelon juice.
As you can see, you start by washing the watermelon thoroughly. This means you should remove any dried-on dirt. Then, you cut the watermelon in half placing one piece face-down on your cutting board. Continue by slicing it straight across into several equal pieces. Now, turn the melon 90 degrees to the left or right and cut again as if creating a grid. Do the same with the other half.
Arrange the watermelon pieces on a serving plate. Bon appetite!
