Watermelon Recipes

Making Melon Balls, 6 x 6 " oil on archival panel, ©2012, Fay Terry

There are directions for a carved watermelon basket that appeared in Southern Living, which you  all know is one of my favorite magazines. I made this several times and filled it with melon balls from cantaloupe, honeydew, and watermelon, and other cut up fruit. It is a time consuming project but beautiful for a party or  cookout.

I pulled out this tool for making melon balls and realized it had been a long time since I used it so then I
remembered a much simpler idea, fruit kebabs that you let soak in a syrup made with sugar and mint leaves. I spend a lot less time in the kitchen now that I'm painting every day, so the quicker and easier it is, the more I like it.

      I'm eating more watermelon now that I've discovered the small seedless ones.
