Waste diary & BBQ watermelon rind challenge
Our biggest volume of waste was watermelon rind! Apparently the white flesh and green skin is used as a vegetable in many Asian countries and contains great vitamins, minerals, fibre and antioxidants.
I love that you can so easily find recipes on the internet for weird and wonderful ingredients, like:
Watermelon Skin Halwa
Barbequed Watermelon Rind with Sauces
Watermelon Pie from southern USA
Someone has even dedicated a whole site to fill your belly, not landfill with watermelon
The challenge now is to give them a go. BBQ watermelon rind first... This photo from
