Life Hack: Cutting the Perfect Watermelon
I’ll be honest, life hacks are not really my thing. I find most of them unnecessary and sometimes more time-consuming than just doing things the regular way. However, I saw this watermelon life hack and it actually works really well so I wanted to share it with you.
You will need a quarter of a watermelon, a cutting board and a sharp knife, (something longer than a pairing knife.)
Begin by cutting vertical stripes into your watermelon without cutting the rind.
Next, cut across the watermelon. I place my hand gently on top as I do this to prevent any of the top pieces from sliding out.
It will look like this when you finish that step. Don’t worry if your cuts aren’t perfectly straight.
Next, carefully cut along the rind, again gently holding the top of the watermelon.
Now your watermelon is ready to serve.
Serve with forks or toothpicks. Everyone can just spear chunks of perfectly cut watermelon and enjoy.
This cuts back on a lot of the mess watermelon makes. And yes this works with any other type of melon you can quarter. Enjoy!
