Step 1: Prepare Your Work Area
1 Small Bowl (for seeds and scrapings)
1 Large Bowl (for de-seeded "fillets" of wonderfully sweet watermelon)
1 Garbage can (not shown in photo, but essential for discarding the rind)
1 Ripe, SEEDED watermelon
Seeded watermelon tastes much, much better than the seedless varieties. Tap the watermelon and listen for a pleasant drum sound, rather than a dull thud.
Watermelons grown in my hometown, Hermiston, Oregon, are world famous for being the sweetest, but I'm willing to associate with anyone who loves watermelon, from wherever!
