Melon Water

(Vaughan’s Vegetable Cook Book)

The following is said to be an infallible sign of a ripe watermelon, it

takes close inspection to find sometimes, but the sign is there if the

condition for it exists. When the flesh of the melon changes color and

its seeds begin to turn black a small scale or blister appears on the

rind. They increase in number and size as the melon ripens, until a ripe

one shows them thickly strewn over the surface. A small crop of blisters

indicates unripe fruit. A melon must be served ice cold. Cut it through

the middle, scoop out the flesh with a tablespoon in a circle as much as

possible that the pieces may be conical or egg shaped. Cover the platter

with grape leaves and pile the fruit upon them, allowing the tendrils of

the grapes to wander in and out among the melon cones.
