Make Your Own Fruit Basket

Standard

Now this isn’t exactly a recipe but it’s fun and lets you do something with all those fruit rinds you’ve been throwing away. It’s also a great idea for a party, I made it at my Super Bowl party this year.

SUPPLIES

1 watermelon
a melon baller (an ice cream scoop will work as well)
a bowl
a knife
toothpicks
any other fruit you want

DIRECTIONS

Cut your watermelon in half the short way.
Use the melon baller or ice cream scoop to scoop out the flesh of both halves of the watermelon and place in a bow, set the flesh aside it will be used to fill your basket up later.
Place one half of the rind aside, this will be the bottom of your basket.
Take the other half of the melon, you’re going to use this to make a handle for your basket. Place this rind cut side down and using your knife cut a strip from the middle. (I used honeydew melon rind in my picture, if you do this you’ll probably need to connect two strips with a toothpick to make it big enough to sit over the bottom of your basket).
Once you have your handle stick a toothpick into the bottom end of each side of the handle and stick it into the bottom of your basket.
You should now have a basket with a handle.
Now it’s up to you, you can cut flowers or decorations out of the rest of the fruit and connect it to your basket for decoration using a toothpick.
Cut up the remainder of your fruit, mix with your watermelon and stick into your basket to serve.

Have Fun!
