My family looks at me weird when I cook hot-dogs with salt. So, yeah.

I bought the watermelon back, but *sad face* since my butter in the frig is frozen. So I'll have to defrost it. I'll have to wait and try the experiment tomorrow. I've planned to experiment with different combinations of salt, butter, and condensed milk. Any other suggestions for adding flavors to my watermelon? (I can buy those for testing as long as I can find them in the local supermarket.)

*Watermelon is not as cheap as a month ago, and neither as good quality as before. So it's a good way to test if these additives can actually help with the flavors or not.

Got a giant watermelon for $3 from the Farmer's Market...I don't really like putting salt on it, but following the same line of thinking, I put sugar on it. It also made it more juicy and it tasted good too.

I've never salted or sugared my watermelon.

I used to just get that stuff in me as quickly as possible.

1st experiment done. Adding Cheese and Butter on watermelon. I happened to buy a cheese on the way home, thinking it should be interesting to compare withh butter.

And cheese is in fact much better than using butter. But one thing keeps making adding either cheese and butter hard. They are both containing or made of oil, so they are both hard to apply on watermelon, unless it's frozen. When the watermelon melt, it's hard to apply enough on the surface.

For the taste department. Applying cheese tasted better than butter. And it's hard to describe the taste. Imagine adding creamy ice cream into fruit juice. Not that bad actually. But you can't add to much, but only apply a thin layer, or you just taste the plain cheese or butter. (I discover a good way of doing that is to apply them on a toast slice first and make the spoon cover with already partially melt cheese/butter, than apply to the watermelon. In fact it's more convenient to apply them on the bread and make a watermelon sandwich. And I think it would be a hot sell if you can overcome the problem of dripping watermelon juice , and make it a good hot season breakfast.

Lime juice sounds pretty awesome.

Must try.

For, in order that men should resist injustice, something more is necessary than that they should think injustice unpleasant. They must think injustice absurd; above all, they must think it startling. They must retain the violence of a virgin astonishment. When the pessimist looks at any infamy, it is to him, after all, only a repetition of the infamy of existence. But the optimist sees injustice as something discordant and unexpected, and it stings him into action.

Egads!
I take you don't put lime juice in chicken soup or on raw hotdog meats that have been chopped up either.

Doh!
I always seem to make some comment along those lines and I always get the same response.
On the plus side now I know.

And knowing is ha- *shot*

I usually salt everything (sometimes I eat salt plain, it's just so salty), but I haven't heard of this. Will probably try it.

What. What. I don't even... Cheese? What.

I've never even thought of salting watermelon but I could understand why it would work. Salt does make everything taste a little better... (the very first time I baked a batch of cookies - I think I was 4 - I couldn't understand why my mother wanted salt in them)

I'm going to have to try the lime juice though. Lime juice makes everything tastes better : )

I have never assaulted a watermelon. However, I do put pepper on apples, bananas, and cantaloupe.
