Watermelons

Original post made by Walter E. Wallis, Midtown, on Jul 21, 2008

Does anyone know how to spike a watermelon? I plugged one and poured Kalua and Harvey's in but the uptake [downdraw?] is mighty slow. Wikie and Google fail me.

Walter,

Its nice to see you posting something comprehensible.

Try this site:

I think step #3 may be the key (using a skewer to create "entry
channels" into the flesh after opening up a hole).

Enjoy.

Use a very sharp paring knife to carve out a thin deep crescent along the length. Leave a high dam of rind at each end. Spike to spec. Replace the cutout before the final pour fully seeps in. When the room stops spinning tell us how it worked.

I shall try both methods. Perhaps Palo Alto can become the watermelon spiking capital of the world.
