What Came Into Your Mind When You Hear About Watermelon?

Do you think about cold freezing winter months or hot summer days? I think most of us like to have watermelon in the summer when it is hot. Some people like salt on their watermelon. Some people like to cut a small hole in the melon and fill it with vodka. Others like to hit them with sledgehammers. What do you do with your watermelon?

A friend of mine likes to cut them up into small cubes and freeze them then I visit her and we eat frozen melon on hot summer days. We're back in a cool spell for a while, it's only going to be in the upper 80s and low 90s for a while so it's not hot enough for that yet.

To be quite honest, the picture that first comes to mind is strictly politically incorrect these days and if I told you I would be hounded off the site for 'racial discrimination'. Watermelons don't grow in this country, so they have to be imported and, as they are usually large and heavy, that means that they are fairly expensive. When I'm feeling flush, however, I have been known to buy one but then wonder whether to eat watermelon till it comes out of my ears or to throw half of it away. In the end, I have compromised by taking the flesh out of what we haven't managed to eat, liquidising it and freezing it. It does make a delicious and easy sorbet just as it is, though I find that the addition of a little sugar and, maybe, a touch of ginger helps when you are eating something frozen.

I eat it! I cut it open and I eat the heart, if I share I give them half , what is left I scoop put and put in the fridge for another meal. I bought one the size of a basket ball last week, it was so freakin good. I gave Tony half.

I just cut it into pieces and eat it. I will never forget when I was a kid, I was spending the night with my best friend and for the first time ever, I saw her parents sprinkle salt on their watermelon and I thought that was so weird. I went home and told my parents. I was fully expecting them to agree with me about how weird it was. And they said, it was not odd, that some people like it that way. But , I thought it was odd then and I still think it is odd now.

I eat a lot of it if I buy it. It is kinda hard on blood sugar levels for some but it has great nutrition. I like it frozen. I salted it when I was a kid but do not anymore. A big treat was when my cousin and I would visit the grandparents and they would cut a Sugar Baby melon in half for us to share. We felt very special.
