So, go ahead and eat another watermelon!

So, you've already made the pickles and you still have a watermelon craving? Go ahead, eat another watermelon. Even if you don't want to make any more pickles, you can still use the rind!

Watermelon rind tastes great in your traditional stir fry!

Cut and peel the rind as shown in the "pickle post".

Now cut the rind into small pieces (about 1 inch long by 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick).

Go ahead and prepare the stir fry in your usual manner adding the melon rind as one of the "veggies". Since it may take longer to cook than some of your other veggies, you may want to give it a head start.

That's all there is to it! A new "vegetable" for your old stir fry recipe....and best of all....nothing to throw away from the melon except a small green peel!
NOTE: The stir fry picture is NOT the stir fry I made with my melon rind. Of course I FORGOT to take a photo when I made it!

I just found your blog from New Friend Friday. You have so many great ideas for saving money! I'd never thought to use the rest of the watermelon, but now I've got something new to try! Thanks!
