How to Cut a Watermelon into Sticks
Cutting a watermelon into sticks is an easy and fun way to enjoy this delicious summer fruit. It’s also a great way to serve watermelon at parties or barbecues. Here’s how to do it.
Step 1: Prepare the Watermelon
Start by washing the outside of the watermelon with soap and warm water. Then, cut off both ends of the watermelon so that it can sit flat on your cutting board.
Step 2: Cut the Watermelon in Half
Using a sharp knife, cut the watermelon in half lengthwise. This will make it easier to cut into sticks.
Step 3: Cut Into Slices
Once you have two halves of the watermelon, cut each half into slices about one inch thick. You can make them thicker or thinner depending on your preference.
Step 4: Cut Into Sticks
Now that you have slices of watermelon, cut each slice into sticks about one inch wide. Make sure all of your sticks are roughly the same size for even cooking.
Step 5: Enjoy!
