Recipe Directions

1. Wash and peel watermelon. I used my soft fruit peeler.
2. Look at the melon and see which side will make the best looking brain:) I put the narrow oval looking side on top. Cut a small slice off the bottom so it is stable.
3. Using a very thin or sharp knife make the first cut down the middle. Widen the cut slightly by making another cut next to the first one at a slight angle about 1/8 inch away. This will allow you to remove a V-shaped sliver of melon and reveal the red um...flesh..underneath:)
4. Using a picture as a guide, continue to carve out slivers of melon in a brain-like pattern.
