Watermelon (without) Sugar: A Recipe

In watermelon sugar the deeds were done and done again as my life is done in watermelon sugar.
-Richard Brautigan, "In Watermelon Sugar"

My family hates when I use the sink as a veggie scrap holding tank. I admit, it doesn't bother me at all; the stuff eventually makes it to the compost bucket.

Here's a particularly happy sink clog before I moved it all to the pail.

A fine and messy recipe:
Watermelon chunks ~ blend, then strain
Lime juice, to taste
Crushed ice, recommended
Sugar, not necessary
Mint sprigs, optional

you should try making pickled watermelon rind, a delicious southern treat that i have not been able to find since moving west. best wrapped in bacon and baked until it caramelizes. sooooo good.

Thanks for stopping by said...

Brad, that sounds it should go in "Hobo Cooking" Volume Two.
