While summer may be drawing to a close, fresh watermelons and berries are still in season in parts of the country.  For your next get together consider taking a fresh melon basket.

berries of your choice
pineapple
grapes
Long butcher knife

Choose an oval-shaped watermelon.

Using a long butcher knife in the center of the melon, trace a 2-inch handle. This handle will remain uncut at the base, but cut on the sides to form the handle.

Make angular cuts around the middle of the melon to form the basket. Scoop out the meat of the melon and place to the side.

Refill melon with a combination of berries, pineapple, grapes and watermelon. It looks much more difficult than it is. It just takes time to make the cuts. Your friends will be impressed!

  1. Thank you. This looks so refreshing! I made watermelon baskets for our daughter’s wedding reception years ago. It takes a little time and care to make this basket, but it’s worth it!
