Watermelon Smoothie

Most experts say watermelons taste best just off the vine, simply chilled and cut in wedges. But watermelon has been served in just about every way imaginable: as rind pickles, and in preserves, salads, slushes, cakes and pastries. During the Civil War, the Confederate Army boiled down watermelons as a source of sugar and molasses. Russians go so far as to make beer from watermelon juice.
