Before the summer fruit season is completely over, I thought I’d share my new favorite way to eat watermelon. Wanting a new way to spice up watermelon, I searched for new preparations and came across this, a lime-honey drizzle courtesy of Bobby Flay. Make sure you give yourself enough time to cool the syrup, otherwise it will run right off the watermelon. My husband doesn’t care for the extra flavors, he likes his watermelon exactly the way God created it. And I don’t blame him, it stands very well on its own, but my daughter and I enjoy switching things up every now and again. It’s sure not a bad use of the leaves off our new pineapple mint plant either.
