My mother-in-law called the other day and was telling me how her friend sticks watermelon in the freezer and eats it on a hot summer day. I tried it and it was a huge hit! We can never eat an entire watermelon in this house to begin with so its a great way to utilize the fruit before it goes bad. I think this would be a great thing to pack in the cooler next time we go to the zoo.
This is what I did:
- cut the watermelon in triangles
- used a knife to make a small opening in the rind to insert a popsicle stick
- stuck the plate of watermelon pops in freezer before I went to bed
