A “Smoked Watermelon” Roast! Incredibly Creative Cooking Recipe! Disguised Chinese Desserts Too!

Ready To Have Your Mind Blown? Here Is Some Smoked Watermelon Roast!

A wildly creative new menu items has foodies around the world weighing in!

As reported by The Daily Mail:

A New York City restaurant has divided the internet after it unveiled a smoked ‘ham’ on the menu β€” which is actually made entirely out of watermelon.

Ducks Eatery, a smokehouse restaurant located in the East Village, caused a flurry on social media after it showed off its watermelon ham on Instagram.

To create the juicy ‘ham’, the eatery smokes the watermelon for eight hours, and then places it in a brine made of salt, ash, and spices for four days.

But that’s not all.

The watermelon is then smoked for another eight hours before it is placed in a pan with rosemary and the ‘meaty’ juices to solidify the taste.

When the watermelon is served to the table, it looks exactly like the a ham on the outside β€” but when a waiter slices into it, the pink fruit inside is revealed.

Wow!

FoodBeast had this video of the “carving:”

As you can see, social media weighed in all over the map, with some loving the creativity, and some crying “blasphemy!”

Personally, I’d dig in and love it!

The Daily Mail has the whole story, including more pictures, video and trivia – bravo to them – see the story here:

  1. Wow!! Amazing. What a clever idea.

  2. I could not, would not eat that watermelon ham. I would not eat it in a boat. I would not eat it if I was given a mink coat. There really is something blasphemous about messing with food, especially meat! Can you imagine eating the fake meat that has been invented? I cannot πŸ™‚

  3. Reblogged this on Retired? No one told me! and commented:
