Frequently Asked Questions
Almost everyone has their own way of cutting Watermelon. I will tell you the way I do it at home.
I always cut the entire watermelon in one go. Use how much ever I want and store the remaining in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
Firstly, I cut the upper and lower ends of the watermelon. In case, you are cutting only half, cut only one side of the end. You can just cover half with a plastic wrap and store in the fridge.
Then I take my knife and cut the watermelon from the centre.
Once done, I take half of the watermelon, lay it on the cutting board (flesh part down towards the board), and start peeling the rind with the knife. Make sure you cut one section at the time so that you cut it properly and don’t cut the flesh while doing it.
Once the peeling is done, you can cut the watermelon in whatever shape and size you desire. Take out the seeds as much as you can before making a juice or storing it.
No white part should be remaining on the cut watermelon. Remove the rind completely.
