Fort Vannoy Farms is known for their sweet red and yellow watermelons! Here are some fun ways you can use watermelons to carve for summer fun and parties:
1. Watermelon Pizza
This is a fun and easy way to serve watermelon at a party. Simply cut the watermelon into 1-inch rounds, then cut each round into triangles. You can leave the rind on for easy eating or remove it. Top the watermelon with your favorite fruits, such as strawberries, blueberries, and grapes. You can also add yogurt or honey for a sweet treat.
2. Watermelon Boats
These are a great way to serve watermelon at a pool party or barbecue. Cut the watermelon in half horizontally, then remove the seeds. Use a spoon to scoop out the flesh, leaving a 1-inch border of rind. Fill the boats with fruit salad, yogurt, or ice cream.
3. Watermelon Animals
This is a fun way to get the kids involved in carving watermelon. Use a sharp knife to carve simple shapes out of the watermelon, such as animals, flowers, or letters. You can also use cookie cutters to make the shapes.
4. Watermelon Wedge
This is a classic way to serve watermelon. Cut the watermelon into wedges, then remove the seeds. You can eat the watermelon plain, or top it with your favorite toppings, such as honey, lime juice, or mint.
5. Watermelon Balls
These are a fun and refreshing way to serve watermelon. Cut the watermelon into 1-inch cubes, then remove the seeds. You can skewer the watermelon balls on toothpicks for easy eating.
Here are some additional tips for carving watermelon:
Use a sharp knife to avoid crushing the watermelon.
Be careful not to cut yourself.
If you are carving a complex shape, start with a small sketch on the watermelon rind to help you get started.
Have fun and be creative!
With a little creativity, you can turn a watermelon into a delicious and eye-catching centerpiece for your next summer party.
