ATM-Watermelon
1. First you will need a sturdy, long knife.
2. Take your knife and cut off the top and bottom of the watermelon so it can sit on a baking pan without moving.
3. Now take your knife and cut long sections from top to bottom off the rind. Go around the whole watermelon and take all the rind off, then go back over it to take any white rind off you might have missed.
4. While your melon is still standing, make cuts from top to bottom to cut the melon into one inch slices.
5. Split it into two equal parts, and lay them down on a baking tray or cutting board. Now make one inch cuts all along the melon on both sides going horizontal. Then turn your knife and go the other way, this time making one inch vertical cuts. Now you are done…your whole melon is now cut into perfect 1 inch cubes.
