My new friend, Teressa, has been teaching all the moms here the "proper way to cut a watermelon." With over 40 kids combined, we've eaten our fair share of the sugary summer fruit.
As she dissected about the 10th watermelon today, I decided to take pictures. I will never cut a watermelon the same after watching her.
First she slices off about 2 inches of each end. Then she cuts it in half. Turning one half so that the bigger side is down, start cutting slices or wedges (like a pie). If you have a relatively sharp knife, this is simple.
If you cut the slices so that they are slender, it makes it easy enough for the littlest of hands to savor.
