It’s true. For anyone who loves fried green tomatoes, you’ll be surprised at how similar this tastes. And talk about waste not, want not.

Cornmeal mix (you can buy this pre-made or make it yourself by mixing 1/2 flour and 1/2 corn meal)

1 tsp of salt

Pepper to taste

Slice the white part *only* of watermelon rind into slices similar to the size of tomato slices. Coat in the corn meal mixture, salt and pepper .

Fry in 350 degree oil for about 8 minutes or until tender and lightly brown.

We tried this tonight and I’m just amazed I didn’t know about this already. I’m in love. Honestly in love.
