How to Make a Watermelon Fruit Basket

July 30th, 2013 Cooking

If you're planning on having a summer garden party, you should try and do something that will set your event apart from all of the others that your guests will attend this season. One way to do this is to serve food in a creative way that will have all of your friends begging you to tell them how you did it. For example, you should try crafting a watermelon fruit basket to serve all of your melons, berries and other seasonal fruits. 

Before you try to make a basket, you may want to start out by just making a watermelon fruit bowl. All Recipes stated that all you have to do to make a watermelon fruit bowl is to purchase a large watermelon, and cut 1/4 of it off the top. Then, remove as many seeds as possible and leave about 1/2 of the flesh inside of the watermelon shell. After that, all you have to do is put all of your favorite fruits inside and you have a watermelon fruit bowl!

Once you've tackled that, you may want to move on to crafting a basket. Fab Foods explained that to make a watermelon fruit basket, you should first take a large watermelon and cut a small piece off the bottom so that it'll sit on a flat surface. Then, draw a line on the watermelon with a pen that cuts it in half horizontally, and use marker to draw a strip 1 1/2 - 2 inches wide that will form the handle of your basket. Next, carefully take your knife and begin cutting along the lines that you've drawn. Carefully remove the pieces you've cut out, and then remove the seeds from the watermelon and 1/2 of the flesh. Add other fruits, and you've got a basket your guests are sure to love!
