Watermelon rinds --- keep them and juice them
« on: June 17, 2012, 09:24:54 AM »
Don't chuck your rinds!!
Most of the time I keep the rinds and juice them. Today I juiced them with half a lemon (lime is better) then stirred one tsp of 30,000 unit cayenne into it. Go to an Indian grocery for cayenne at a good price. Ginger and apples juice well with these rinds

After stirring it in let sit the juice sit for at least 10 minutes for the cayenne to diffuse
I have not tried it yet but this lemon+watermelon+ ginger juice would be good at night with a shot of gin, vodka or Jim Beam

I don't slobber saliva over my watermelon. I cut away the red meat from the rind then eat with a fork or spoon. Mangoes, another story, there is no avoiding getting mango juice on your hands and face :) A good thing?  :) It's all good :)
