Every Friday I am going to tell you about a new fruit, vegetable, food product or food craze. These aren't necessarily new to everyone but I think everyone will be able to learn something!
The point of this is for ME and YOU to learn new things about food and expand our horizons!
Let's being honest, how many of us have ever eaten a rutabaga? I know I haven't!
Every Foodie Friday I'll explore a new food and hopefully find some awesome new recipes, or at the very least be able to say, "Why, yes I have eaten a rutabaga!"
For my first Foodie Friday, I am keeping things simple by telling you about:
- The largest recorded watermelon was 262 lbs!
- Watermelon is 92% water.
- The watermelon is cousin to squash, pumpkin & cucumber.
How to prepare: Little known fact: you should wash watermelon before you eat it. Even with a rind you don't want dirt getting into your slices or when you are cutting it up.
Recipe suggestions: Normally I would try to have something of my own here but today I am just linking to a couple fun recipes!
There really aren't a lot of recipes using yellow watermelon out there but you could easily substitute yellow watermelon in any of those beautiful red watermelon salad recipes like this one:
