Despite the fact that the birthplace of watermelon is Africa, the world leadership in the consumption of this tasty and healthy berries belongs to Russia. In our country, it fell somewhere around 9-10 centuries and for the last millennium has firmly registered on our tables. Confirmation of this thesis can be seen from the second half of summer in any supermarket and in any bazaar. There reign watermelons. It's possible that it just seems because of their giant size. But let's be honest. What would you prefer on a hot summer day - a sweet peach or a juicy watermelon? Of course, the second. We not only cut the watermelon, serving it as a dessert, we even salted it, despite the incompatibility of the concept of salting and the original sweetness of this berry.
Despite such a popularity of this berry, how to choose the right way and how to cut a watermelon, not everyone knows. We will not talk about the selection criteria now, since this is a whole science. In addition, at the end of summer, and even more so in early autumn, almost all watermelons are already filled and tasty. And we'll talk about how to cut a watermelon correctly.
In large families, watermelons are usually cut off by the head of the family during meals, giving the household members accurate and beautiful pieces. He can do it in several ways.
The most common way is to divide it into lobules.
The same applies to the variant of slicing berries from above with circles. Therefore, it is still more "fairer" to cut off the scraps. If you can not evenly cut a watermelon, as the knife constantly leads to the side, divide it into two parts, and then into smaller pieces.
In general, if you bought not very giant berries, then you can and do not cut it. More precisely - we divide the watermelon in half and give each eater on a spoon with a half.
Also, it can be peeled off like an apple, set in cubes and served as a dessert, suggesting using it with forks. About how to properly cut a watermelon in this way and do not say - everything is clear from the attached picture. But this method is for some reason not so popular as in the West.
In fact, to be honest, no one can say how to cut a watermelon properly, since the notion of "correctness" and "irregularity" is simply not applicable here. You do not clean the fish, which you should start to get rid of the scales from the tail, and do not repair the electric switch, where it is important for you to connect the contacts in the required sequence. A watermelon eating, like its cutting, is a matter of taste and habit.
