4 Clever Ways to Use Up Your Leftover Watermelon Rind

IMG_0106 (640x480)

It’s already August and looks like the first days of school are right around the corner! The weather on the other hand, didn’t seem to get the memo because I’m still sporting my flip flops and shades. While I have no problem with an extended summer, there are only a few things I crave during these hot, humid days and at the top of my list… is watermelon! Although it’s super juicy, bright red and delicious, watermelon is one of those fruits where a lot ends up going to waste. But did you know that the white rind we’re so quick to throw away has many great uses? Try some of these options below and see how waste-less you can be!

  1. Pickled Watermelon Rind: Hey, you pickle cucumbers so why not try it with watermelon rind? Use your favorite pickling recipe and use watermelon rinds where they call for cucumbers. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the similar taste and texture!
  2. Sweetened Watermelon Rind: Though the white rind of the watermelon is not as sweet as the red flesh, it’s still edible and definitely has a great crunchy texture. If you have a sweet tooth and you’re craving a great refreshing snack, dice up some watermelon rind and top with your favorite sweetener whether it be sugar, equal, honey or even coconut milk.
  3. Acne Treatment: We’ve all gone through it… being a pimple-faced teenager dreading going to school. Eating watermelon rind can help with acne problems but rubbing the rinds on the skin surface can also help clear up acne
  4. Watermelon Cups: (My personal fave!): This may be a bit time consuming but if you want your guests to rave about your food AND your drinkware, grab yourself some mini watermelons and make some personalized watermelon cups. The natural juices from the watermelon will also be a great added taste for all party goers. All you need is an x-acto knife and a steady hand.

For the past two summers, I’ve pretty much lived in my favorite yellow Vivienne Westwood + Melissa Ultragirl flats and as a result, they’re lookin’ pretty decrepit. I know I could give them a good wash but I wondered if there was something a little more creative that could be done, when it hit me right in the face – cheese shoes! If I could simply cut out holes – think swiss cheese – where my shoes were dirty, they would have a whole new look. And since cheddar, gruyere, bleu, gouda, edam, and even limburger have long been my poisons of choice, refashioning my Melissas into zapatos quesos (don’t even know if that makes sense, but I’m gonna run with it) seems perfect for me. I sketched out what I want them to look like above. Anyone have any ideas on how to accomplish this?
