Halloween Melon Brain Recipe Tutorial

halloween food recipes

As soon as I saw this Halloween idea of a melon brain I loved it. Little did I know how exhausting peeling a whole watermelon is! Luckily Mr NQN stepped in as I was making slow progress getting the green off the melon and with some peeling and a few deft hacks we had a brain! For Halloween I wanted to have some sort of fresh fruit component as every year the weather is warm and people's costumes can be heavy so we try and keep guests refreshed-in the most morbid way possible of course ;)

Slicing off the bottom to make a base

Step 1 - Slice a slice off the bottom of the watermelon to give it a flat base to sit on. Peel the green layer off and then get down to the white layer. Using a sharp paring knife cut swirls into the watermelon getting to the pink layer below.
