Wonderful Watermelon - Food Of the Month

I'm so excited that we are happily jumping into summertime. When I think of summer, watermelon always comes to mind. I don't ever recall a summer that I haven't eaten watermelon poolside or abused a watermelon at the store in order to find which one was the juiciest. Luckily Martha gave me a tip to pick the melons with a white patch on it, this is where it sat and made sugar for the sweetness. So far this season all my melons have been sweet and juicy! Here is a super refreshing treat next time you pick the perfect watermelon.

We made watermelon iced tea. So super thirst quenching.
Here's what you need:
Your favorite iced tea, we used a tropical tea.

Cut the melon.

Juice the melon, then strain out seeds.

Combine watermelon juice with tea, I used about 3 tablespoons per cup. Totally your preference, I have a sweet tooth so mine is on the sweeter side. Garnish with a slice and enjoy with family and friends.
