Best Watermelon Recipes

It’s #TuesdaysTips and this week we are covering watermelons. We absolutely love eating watermelon. It is healthy, hydrating and very messy. It is one fruit we can binge on with no problem but we always wait until it is in season so it is cheaper. Once little trick we learned last year was putting some sugar on the cut watermelon to allow the flavor to pop even more.

Another tip I want to share is how to pick out the best watermelon. You want to find the melon that is heavy for its size. This usually means it will be sweeter and will have more water content. Look for an orange creamy field spot. The darker yellow field spot usually means it was on the vine longer and is full of flavor. Watermelon can also be used in dishes like the ones below. A fun way to have your kids eat healthier too.
