    I actually put the verticle slices in the wedge before cutting it from the bottom, that way, when I make the bottom cut all the individuals fall off.

    Hi fruits and veg lovers,

    I have my own technique I developped with years of pratice, i open the watermelon with a corkscrew then I blow in it with a straw, I shake it well and sing an irish song…

    and then all the juice is gone, and the fruit keeps all its crispyness and flavour.

    dont thank me. thank god to have given me this gift with fruits !
