Thanks to advances in conventional cooking and packaging of food, the skills of preparing meals — or at least ingredients — has become a rare art on its own. Though not everyone strives to be the next Bobby Flay or Rachel Ray, everyone can surely get behind food hacks. The Inquisitr previously reported on these hacks including a list of seventeen hacks that are sure to change your cooking world. Though not as important as the seventeen previously reported, we even found three unique hacks used with Ramen noodles.
Now, there is a video that shows another monumental food hack. It gives viewers step-by-step instructions on how to cut a watermelon into cubes. Not only that, it is one of the most popular videos on YouTube as of the publication of this article.
Brought to YouTube viewers by the CrazyRussianHacker, the steps to cut the watermelon into cubes starts by slicing it into half lengthwise. Next, take one of the halves and make a cut about an inch parallel to the first cut and continue on until almost reaching the bottom. Make sure the cut is not all the way through because it must be repeated on the other side. Next, separate the rind from the edible part. Finally cut the edible part into a grid. Dump out the contents in a bowl for cubed watermelon.
It is cool to see the food hack done in the video attached above, and apparently over 600,000 people think so too. Currently the 40th most popular video on the #PopularOnYouTube list, the video was uploaded on April 15, 2015, and has over 14,000 likes, but also almost 600 dislikes from those who didn’t like the results shown from the food hack.
The most hilarious parts of the video are all the “watermelon in a watermelon” quotes made in reference to the part of the video when the watermelon cubes are put back into the empty watermelon shells. This comes from a meme in which a man sees watermelon inside of watermelon as the most beautiful thing ever, as shown in the video above.
Now that you know the food hack on cutting watermelon into cubes, will it be something you’ll try the next time you cut one up, or do you think it is too much work?
