Tips for Making These Watermelon Blueberry Skewers

  • Choosing the best watermelon: make sure to get a melon that is heavy for its size, has a yellow-ish circle on it (meaning it ripened in the field), and makes a hollow sound when thumped (under-ripe melons sound duller).
  • Make sure to use a very stable cutting board while you cut your watermelon into ‘plates’. If your cutting board is slipping around, put a dishcloth under it.
  • While I usually use a full-size watermelon for this recipe (they’re cheaper!), if you are making this recipe with kids, it might be fun to get them each their own small melon.
  • This recipe works best with seedless watermelons.
  • It’s easy to add other fruit to these skewers as well! Pineapple and melon both make great stars too.
