Summer’s beloved fruit, the watermelon, can be pretty messy to eat. Instead of serving the melon in traditional wedges, cut it into sticks — easy finger foods.

This is great for little kids or for serving a crowd when you need smaller portions. I did this the other day and found another benefit: The sticks stack up much better in a container, so you don’t have to do that Tetris-like watermelon wedges cramming to save space.

A Thrifty Mum has a tutorial for cutting the watermelon. Basically you’ll first cut it into three pieces, then the intersecting slices. If you have an apple corer, you can make watermelon cylinders, but with this approach you only need a sharp knife.
