Watermelon Recipe Roundup

When our editor was a kid, she was obsessed with learning to cook every imaginable kind of dessert and exploring every available type of ingredient. She made donuts, baked Alaska, even marshmallows from scratch. When she found a recipe for watermelon ice cream, she had to try it. Nobody wanted to eat it, and her own honest judgement was that a wedge of watermelon eaten out on the grass is the best summer recipe that ever was.

But that was then, and this is now, and look at all these wonderfully inventive watermelon recipes from around the Edible Communities:
