Two words: Grilled watermelon. I am not kidding you. Go here http://www.timesdaily.com/article/20100707/ARTICLES/307079999 and be amazed at how wonderfully delicious this is. Every week during the summer, I cover the food demonstration by local cooks and chefs at the Spring Park Farmers’ Market in Tuscumbia, Alabama. This past week, a local grill master dazzled the crowd with this sweet and smoky taste. You have got to try it.
Now that I would try. It sounds better than the fried Oreo.
I would eat that!
Grilled watermelon, First heard about the watermelon can be baked,Don’t know the taste
It’s incredibly surprisingly wonderful! Sort of warm and sweet and caramelized all at the same time, with light grill marks. A great summer treat and, you are so right, Mary, much better than fried Oreos!
There just have to be some standards somewhere and I would definitely draw the line at corrupting one of nature’s most perfect summer foods by grilling it. Watermelon should be exempt from grills and deep fat frying! I will stand firm and refuse to try it. Can you guess how much I love my summer watermelon? That said, we do grill peaches all summer, especially when we have pork. Yum.
Connie — I hear you! I know that grilled watermelon goes against the cold and juicy summertime treat we always think about, but I promise you that if you grill peaches, you are going to love grilled watermelon!
