You know how, when you’re singing in a group or choir and you forget the words, you are supposed to just mouth the words “watermelon, watermelon” over and over, and supposedly people won’t be able to tell the difference?
You didn’t know that? Well, now you do.
Full of exceptionally useful information this blog is!
But seriously, it’s watermelon season people! If you’re like us, and have a household of two, even a small watermelon goes a loooooong way. So I thought I’d share a few little tidbits to add to your repertoire of watermelon knowledge.
First of all, my very favorite watermelon recipe is Watermelon Gazpacho Soup. Ever tried it? Sooooo divine! CLICK HERE for the recipe.
Also, did you know that watermelon is on the Clean 15 list? That means it’s safe to buy in non-organic form if you are concerned about pesticides and such. Always remember to wash your melon before cutting though! You can read more about the Clean 15 list (and the Dirty Dozen) HERE.
And lastly, what do you do with your leftover watermelon juice (you know, what’s left after you’ve balled up all the flesh)? HERE are a few ideas for “upcycling” your watermelon juice.
Of course perhaps the best way to enjoy this quintessential icon of summer days, is slice by thick ruby-red slice. Complete with juice running down your chin, and a seed spitting contest after dinner.
