“I had a small portion of a Yellow Globe left, but didn't feel like having any more straight watermelon. This was the perfect way to finish it off- sweet and hot in the perfect combination. I served it as part of an appetizer with smoked sausages, habanero cheese, and crackers- but this would also be very nice on fish, or a variety of grilled meats. Cook time is sitting time.”
