Cook's Notes

Watermelons range in weight from fifteen to thirty-five pounds, depending on the variety; three pounds will produce about six cups of chopped fruit. Discard the seeds before using.

    I thought the recipe was excellent. It tasted great and was beautiful to present. I served it alongside some of the watermelon rind I pickled. (Actually it was a dinner party with every course made with watermelon in some way and the soup was declared the winner of the meal!)

    Keep the pulp and make it even healthier and enriching cleanser.

    The introduction says " Try this summery twist on a classic Italian soup." Italian??? I don't think so! Having said that, it does look appealing and will try it :-D

    I don't think straining out 2 cups of watermellon pulp is a good idea. I believe that is the FIBER in the watermellon. It certainly seems like a waste to me
