We Answered:To be honest, I didn't hold out much hope for you, but here's at least one:
Watermelon Muffins Recipe

1/8 tsp cinnamon
6 Tbsp butter, at room temperature

Julie Said:can anyone give me some watermelon recipes?
We Answered:2 pounds seedless watermelon, diced
1 mango, diced
Â½ ounce ginger, grated
8 ounces peach, apricot or berry puree
2 kumquats, sliced
Place 1 pound of diced watermelon in food processor and blend to liquefy. Set aside and refrigerate. Finely dice remaining watermelon and mango and place with grated ginger in a bowl and allow to marinate. When ready to serve, place an equal amount of the fruit puree in a soup bowl along with equal portions of the marinated melon-mango mixture. Top with watermelon juice. Garnish the rim of the bowl with kumquat slicesand try WATERMELON MARTINI or MARGARITA: 20 ounces watermelon juice (see directions below)
4 ounces watermelon Schnapps
2 ounces Triple Sec
2 ounces Vodka (for optional "punch")
2 heaping teaspoons suger (more/less depending on ripeness of watermelon)
1/2 lime for juice
Cut up watermelon and liquify in blender. Then strain multiple times
until you truly have juice (the set-aside watermelon puree is tasty).
I then put the juice in the fridge beforehand and transferred to the
freezer an hour or so beforehand with the booze - your watermelon
margarita is best pretty darn cold so you don't have to add that
much ice. Put everything into the blender, add ice, blend, and ENJOY!
If you can't find watermelon schnapps, then you might try a light rum,
Southern Comfort, just Vodka, or a smooth Tequila - and you can still
call it a watermelon margarita if you'd like!
You can also easily make this a watermelon martini by using the
same amount of booze, but reducing the amount of juice/lime/suger.
Put in a bar shaker full of ice and get really, really cold;
after straining, I put in the freezer for 30 minutes - this way,
your watermelon martini will be very cold - sip and enjoy!
