Seeding a Watermelon

Great instructions for seeding a watermelon; it really does the trick!
The majority of seeds in a watermelon are found in a concentric ring a few inches from the center of the melon. You can take advantage of this fact when removing seeds. First cut the melon into circular slices of the desired thickness. Using a biscuit or cookie cutter, remove the seedless melon center. With a paring knife, next cut out the ring that contains most of the seeds, and then cut along the inner boundary of the rind. Simply lift off the rind and slice the now-seedless fruit, including the melon center. – cooksillustrated.com email newsletter

Thanks for that tip!! We usually buy seedless but I'll try this the next time we have a "seedy" melon!

That's a really good idea and I don't even need a gadget, cool :)

This is a great method, I usually try cutting it into wedges but I find I get a lot of wastage. This actually makes a lot more sense.
