Watermelon Dilemma Solved

I took the girls to the Watermelon Festival at Lucky Ladd Farms. Lots and lots of fun was had, and we also had some very, very delicious watermelon. I, getting very much into the spirit of things, decided to buy a Sweet Baby seedless watermelon to bring home. (It was $5! I couldn't pass it up.)

As the name says, it is one very sweet, juicy watermelon. Alas, in my joy of finding a well-priced tasty watermelon, I forgot that four people eating an entire watermelon isn't the most practical thing in the world. What is a woman to do with three-quarters of a watermelon in the refrigerator?

This is what happened.

  • Cut up half of a seedless watermelon and pop into your blender. Blend until smooth.
  • Add 1 1/2 cups of 100% white grape juice (or however much you'd like) to sweeten.
  • Store in a sealed container in your fridge. (I put mine in a mason jar.)
  • ENJOY!

The girls love it. Tim and I used it in margaritas yesterday. It's very refreshing and a great way to use up all that watermelon if you find yourself not quite willing to eat that much.
