Lots of Watermelon

I bought a huge watermelon and although we have been eating it I still have too much. Does anyone have any ideas for what to do with extra watermelon??

  1. a food saver bag or container will concentrate the flesh and separate the juice, plus keep it fresh for a few days.

    1. Watermelon granita. Great for the hot weather.

      1. Frozen watermelon treats (thick slices placed on a wooden ice cream stick) keeps my kids happy for those late afternoon cravings before dinner.

        1. I cut it into nice chunks, put it in a pretty bowl and brought it to my friend/neighbor next door.
          I pretty much HATE wartermelon but it wasn't bad sprinkled with some kosher salt and eaten with chopsticks... dog tasted it too.

            My dog loves watermelon -- if I give her a piece with the rind, she'll scrape all the flesh from the rind with her front teeth, then gnaw on the rind.

            Watermelon sorbet is easy and delicious (and keeps until you're not tired of watermelon anymore).

          2. Make Watermelon Curry:


            Camillia Panjabi's original recipe from 50 Great Curries of India is slightly different than the one on that page. Has lime juice first before lemon juice, has similar spices in slightly more timid quantities...
