I’ve featured watermelon carving tips here on the blog in the past, including my own tips for easy ways to turn a watermelon into wedges and a video of a guy who transforms a watermelon into cubes in about 20 seconds.
A friend recently forwarded me a link to a video that shows a guy who demonstrates a very interesting way to create cubes, both quickly and efficiently. Check it out below.
What amazes me most about his technique is how so little of the red watermelon flesh is wasted. Almost all of the flesh is removed, which is something that never happens when I try to cube watermelon. I usually make big wedges, then lay them flat and do the semi-circular cut down by the white part to separate the flesh from the rind.
The result is lots of red flesh still on the rind (which I nibble off when I’m done, so I guess that’s not such a bad thing), OR I cut too close to the rind and get bits of white in the cubes. Again, not a terrible thing, but this proves that there is an easier way to do it!
