I figured this out years ago and agree it’s the only way to cut a watermelon when kids are involved. Julie R. Thomson:
We are elbow deep in watermelon season and that means that many of us have had a river of watermelon juice running down our arms at least a few times. It’s part of eating the melon, so we accept it. But what if there was another way? A cleaner, more efficient way to slice a watermelon that doesn’t require the work of cutting the entire thing down into bite-sized pieces, but will put an end to the mess.
A picture is worth a thousand words.
