We are always taught to not play with our food but this fun way of eating watermelon is the best way to play with your food. Why not create Watermelon Shapes with this beautiful fruit while it is in season?
Have fun cutting all shapes and sizes out of this crunchy fruit and using it in a variety of dishes. Make your kids happy with a load of different shapes. Jazz up a fruit salad or add to your favourite punch.
1. Cut 1-inch slices of watermelon – I find it easiest to use a large knife to cut these slices, please be very careful when doing this.
2. Use metal cookie cutters to cut shapes out of the watermelon.
3. Sprinkle with some lemon juice.
4. These shapes can be used in a chocolate fondue, salad, fruit platter and anything else you can imagine.
