How to compress watermelon for an awesome hors d'oeurve!

Pick up a yummy watermelon!

Cube watermelon and save your scraps. Discard rind and outside.

Purée scraps, so you can add back to compressed watermelon in future step.

Purée away!

Reduce purée in half, this will intensify the flavor. If your watermelon isn't super ripe, feel free to add 1 T of honey to the reduced purée.

Chill purée completely before continuing. I'm using a Irinox Blast Chiller. Will be below 39F in no time at all!

Meanwhile, add cubed melon to a vacuum bag. Or foodsaver bag.

Once liquid is chilled, add 1/8 C to the bagged melon.

Adding liquid to melon so it can be incorporated back into the fruit will intensify the flavor!

Et Voila! Enjoy, and thanks for checking out my guide!
