Melon rind seeds

A good source of healthy fats, protein, vitamins, and minerals such as iron, folate, and magnesium, the seeds actually prove to be as smart of a snack as the fruit itself. Toss them in the oven for a quick bake, and it becomes easy to flip what’s traditionally perceived as a nuisance into an absolute delight.

Cut watermelon into four sections. Use a peeler or a pairing knife to carefully remove the green skin. Then, remove the pink flesh, setting about three cups of the fruit aside to make the watermelon juice. (Save the rest to snack on later!)

The flesh will compost down very quickly but the thicker rind will take a bit longer – cut it into pieces if you want it to rot down quicker or disappear into the bulk of the compost.

If you’ve got a whole melon to compost, definitely cut it up into chunks or slices first.

(Some birds like pecking at the rinds to remove the last of the flesh – if you have regular visitors to your bird feeder, or keep chickens, try hanging the rind up near their food for a couple of days — they might reduce the amount of melon that needs composting.)

Yes, you can compost melons – be they honey dew, galia or watermelons.

Additionally, they are harder than the fruit itself and have the potential to destroy the appliance in its entirety. Even the smaller skins can easily become wrapped around your disposal’s blades, ending up stuck in your system for a long time. these large and harder parts of the melon can also take a long time to grind up, especially if they have already caused damage to the appliance.

Now take it off the flame and add it to heated glass jars. Close the lid and put the jars in boiling water for about five minutes. Now take them out and let them cool. Your Rind jam is ready

Also, remember to chop them up into smaller pieces. The smaller your compost pile, the smaller you should make the rinds. Even if your compost pile is big enough, if you add a whole melon rind, it will be quite slow to decompose. So, just slice the rinds up before adding them to the composting bin.

4. Making rind jam

Meanwhile, take one cup of rind and blend it into a smooth paste along with shredded coconut. Now blend the rice and poha and blend them too. Once it all comes together, leave it to ferment for about five hours. Add some salt to it and very little water. Heat a Tawa and start making your dosa
