This is how I prepare watermelon for my family or my face…
As you can probably tell, it’s a methodical and careful preparation — takes years of practice and a long list of knife skills and training. I’m kind of a big deal…
This giant chunk (which is about a quarter of a melon) represents how I like my watermelon — fresh, easy, and in large quantities!
Carry over from growing up Point.Five.Korean. My Korean Mom would do this for us kids. She’d take a giant melon, whack it a few times with a cleaver, stick a fork in each piece, and carry on with her day. The rind would act as a serving dish, but she’d also sometimes give us a bowl to catch the juices as we ate.
It’s my favorite thing!
Now that I’m grown, I carry on the tradition of giant chunks of melon with my own family. Sadly, hubby doesn’t share my addiction to melon, so I usually just pass him a few bites as I chomp down on mine.
Just writing this post has made me want some!!– gonna go find a cleaver and a nice cold melon!
