F&W's Justin Chapple reveals a foolproof way to cut watermelon into perfect cubes.
[MUSIC] I'm Justin Chapple from Food & Wine's test kitchen. Join me as I demonstrate mad genius tips. [BLANK_AUDIO] I, I love to entertain in the summer and one of my favorite things to make is Watermelon in Fennel salad. But what I don't like is that when I'm cutting the watermelon, the juice is going all over the board and onto the counters. But I've discovered a mad genius tip to cut watermelon into perfect cubes without any mess. We're gonna take a large sharp knife, and I'm going to hold the knife at an angle parallel to the edge of the watermelon wedge and then I'm gonna cut all the way down to the rack. Wine. Now I'm gonna make a second cut at the exact same angle just on the first one and a third cut and I'm gonna rotate the water melon and make the exact same cut on the opposite side. [MUSIC] So I'm gonna rotate the water melon so its facing me. And were going to make one inch vertical cuts all the way down to the bottom [MUSIC] Look. There is zero juice on my board. The coolest part? All those watermelon cubes fall right into the bowl. And if you want to go back to the early 90s, you can use this as a cell phone. Hello? But we have all this beautiful watermelon, nicely cubed. Without the mess. [BLANK_AUDIO]
