Thrifty Tip: Watermelon Edition

Watermelon is one of my favorite foods, but I don’t like the mess involved with eating it off the rind. So, over the years I have developed a quick and efficient process to cube my watermelon.

Instructions:

Step 1: Obtain a watermelon!
Step 2: Cut the watermelon in half
Step 3: Cut each half in half again (so that you have the watermelon cut into quarters)
Step 4: Use a sharp knife to slice the watermelon on the rind from one end to another
Step 5: After it is sliced, cut along the perimeter of the watermelon
Step 6: Slide the slabs of watermelon off of the rind and cut it into cubes
Step 7: Complete with the other three quarters
Step 8: Enjoy!

Thrifty Tip: Celery Edition

Crisp celery is great for a variety of recipes (and even a healthy crunchy snack). Wilted celery is another story. Luckily, there is an easy way to keep your celery crisp MUCH LONGER.

To extend the life of your celery, wrap it in tinfoil and store it in the refrigerator. This should keep your celery crisp for weeks. For more of our thrifty kitchen tips, click here!
