As summertime is upon us (we'll some of us, it might be snowing in Utah again this week), it seems the question on every ones mind is "How do I pick the perfect watermelon?".
Well, I might not have all the answers, but Jenni was told a tip a couple years ago that seems to work better than any others I've heard. You want to find the watermelon with the smallest circle on the side opposite the stem.
When I cut into the watermelon, it was the perfect red inside and sweet and delicious.
One of my children ate 1/4 the watermelon all by himself. I do not recommend allowing 4 year olds to do this for dinner however, it was way too close to bedtime (resulting in 4 bathroom trips later before 10pm). But really, I can't blame him for eating so much.
If you try out this method, I'd love to hear if you have the same success with it I have.
