Thread Name: BS: Watermelon: Salt or Sugar?
Subject: BS: Watermelon: Salt or Sugar?
We were enjoying some chilled watermelon on the back deck this evening when the talk turned to eating watermelon. I've always put salt on mine, but my wife remembers "heated discussions" as she was growing up about whether you should use salt or sugar. I'm from West Central Illinois, on the banks of the Big River; she was born and bred in Washington, DC. and eats her watermelon without either one.

I also put salt on cantaloupe.

My father used sugar on tomatoes, lettuce and celery.

So, how do you eat your watermelon? Besides ripe, I mean.
