Kate’s Escapades: Watermelon De-seeding 101

watermelon lizandkatecupWhen I was at the store recently, the price of a seedless watermelon was 59 cents per pound and the price of a seeded watermelon was 19 cents a pound…a 40 cent per pound difference!

In my never ceasing effort to make life in the kitchen easier for you (and me)…here is my quick and easy step by step method of turning  a seeded watermelon into a delicious SEEDLESS snack for you and your family.
