Spiral Cut Watermelon: A Summertime Treat For Any Size Face
Thursday, July 17, 2014 - 02:08 PM
Melon balls look nice, but they roll all over the plate. Squares and rectangles are fine but boring. Wedges can work well, but if they're too wide your face gets covered in juice, and if they're too narrow they're unsatisfying.
Enter the Spiral Cut Watermelon.
By employing the same spiral cut technology used for Easter hams and county fair fried potatoes, we can eat watermelon better. This technique allows you to slice off watermelon wedges of varying widths with only a single cut. One watermelon produces many size wedges for many size faces, and everyone goes home happy. Plus it just looks so beautiful.
