How to Carve A Watermelon

Slicing A Watermelon:

Start With a Fresh Melon. Choose a watermelon symmetrical in shape without dents, bruises and cuts. Thump, if you must (listen for dull hollow sound). Turn watermelon over. The underside should be creamy yellow with a healthy sheen to the rind. Store cut watermelons in refrigerator. Cover cut surface loosely with plastic wrap. Uncut watermelons keep at room temperature for up to two weeks.

Step 1:

Hold the melon still with one hand; cut off each end, cutting off enough peel to expose the melon's flesh.

Step 2:

Cut the watermelon in half lengthwise.

Step 3:

Remove the rind by inserting a knife between the rind and the flesh to cut it away.

Step 4:

Slice watermelon horizontally into wedges. Cut the wedges lengthwise in even strips.

Step 5:

Serve as wedges or cut into chunks.
