Folks, when bringing Christmas to the festive table it doesn’t get much easier than this. The best of all the raw, no fuss, kid-friendly treats – here is the know how you need to create easy watermelon Christmas trees.
A sharp knife and a watermelon is all you need to set yourself up. Nope, no ordinary bowl of watermelon will do this year. Give the people watermelon trees with rind tree trunk handles!
1 watermelon quarter
- If you have a half or a whole watermelon, cut it down into quarters.
- Leaving the rind attached, slice the watermelon quarter into slices around 2.5 to 3 cm thick. Cut each slice in half – this will make your tree shape.
- Using a small knife, make two incisions a third of the way in from the corner on each slice. Cut along the watermelon flesh and rind line to remove the corner rind and – oh holy night – you have yourself a tree trunk!
- How many trees you’ll get out of a watermelon quarter depends on the size of your melon, but I’m confident it will all be eaten with gusto on a hot Christmas Day.
