You all freaked out over pineapple on pizza, for some reason unbeknownst to myself, but here’s something that actually makes sense to lose your mind over:

People are cooking watermelon like ham… 


New York City Restaurant Ducks Eatery has added a vegan item to its menu, called ‘Watermelon ham’.

It’s not watermelon flavoured vegan ham, or ham flavoured watermelon, it’s literally a watermelon cooked like a smoked/baked leg of ham. 


The restaurant’s chef smokes the watermelon for a long eight hours, before it’s then marinated in salt, ash, and spices for four days. 

The watermelon serves three to five people and costs $75… which, let’s face it, we can’t see us spending our money on. 

I just can’t understand why this is a thing… pineapple on pizza, I get. 

Smoked watermelon? Yeah, nah…

Unless it’s as good as grilled pineapple… then count me in!
