I’m a huge fan of almost every summer fruit, and have been enjoying a great many of them this summer. A few weeks back Lynn posted about her experiences with blackberries. I don’t usually eat blackberries plain, but have mixed them with strawberries and raspberries this summer and found them to be delightful. However, the star of my summer fruit eating this year has been watermelon.
I don’t mean those humongous, rather mealy and tasteless long watermelons I usually find in the grocery stores. I mean the small, almost round watermelons that when cut open, reveal firm, red, and extremely tasteful fruit.
I haven’t been doing anything particularly creative with watermelon. I just cut it into cubes, and eat it straight. No embelishments. No sauces. Just pure watermelon.
