5 Great Watermelon Recipes

5 Great Watermelon Recipes Somewhere along the way watermelon became an ingredient. I mean it may have always been an ingredient, particularly when the melon was green and inedible otherwise, but i don't recall eating watermelon in my youth, other than with more watermelon.  Maybe I just lived a sheltered life,  or I was simply raised by a group of fanatical purists perhaps, but whatever the reason this phenomenon of watermelon as an ingredient strikes me as particularly avant garde, and potentially a waste of perfectly good watermelon.

Judging from the record setting number of watermelons I see around me, not literally as it so happens, perhaps this is just a ploy by the international watermelon council to get a glut taken care of. Whatever the case maybe it seems that watermelon dishes are here to stay, at least for the foreseeable future. You never know what might happen once the glut is over. We might once again be relegating to eating giant triangular slabs of watermelon, while bathed chin to toe in it's faintly sweet and gently sticky juices. Now if you ask me that sounds infinitely more attractive than trying to dice up seed free cubes for inclusion in any of these salads, delicious as they may be! Now, should you prove to be less of a purist than I am, let us celebrate the global watermelon glut with some of these tempting recipes.

  • I have never seen an article about recipes in which the author has not actually MADE the recipes in question. I can't imagine why anyone would be interested in reading an article in which the author speculates on what a recipe might taste like, or offering their suggestions for how to possibly improve it.

    Take the time to make these, and then let us know whether they're good or not. This article feels like someone forced the author to write about watermelons and they reluctantly obeyed, filling each sentence with as much contempt for the subject as possible.

    Very strange.

  • Hahahaha! I was thinking EXACTLY the same thing as bigdaddybacchus.

    I found the article so shocking, to be honest!

    Firstly, I don't have anything against watermelon being eating in any number of different ways, and secondly, I was actually expecting the author to provide some first-hand reviews and advice.

    My family loves to freeze cubes of seedless watermelon then blend them with lemonade for a delicious summer frosty. For grown ups we blend the frozen water melon cubes with portuguese vinho verde.
