Too much watermelon!!

I have gotten a lot of watermelon through my csa this season (and I have 2 big ones on my countertop right now). I have made salads (sweet and savory), beverages, gazpacho, and jam. I want to try something different. Maybe a chutney, if someone can recommend a good recipe. I am willing to try anything different!! I am sick of all my "usual" watermelon recipes!

How about my watermelon gazpacho which may be dissimilar to the one you've tried? https://food52.com/recipes/30358-blimey-limey-watermelon-papaya-gazpacho
Or substitute watermelon for the grapefruit in the following "Vacation in the Tropics" salad - https://food52.com/recipes/29817-vacation-in-the-tropics-salad

I'd also add that the rind can be used for chutney/pickle. Tons of recipes online.

Sam has the right idea - blend, strain, freeze.
Don't worry about straining to a clear liquid - mush is fine ... just get those pesky seeds out.

I should have written this down...but trying from memory. A Mexican fruit salad thing. Watermelon cubes, Green chilies, orange slices, Jicama (in matchstick cut), red onion, Parsley or cilantro, Mint, Feta Cheese.
Dress with a lime and olive oil dressing with a touch of cumin.
Serve with lime/garlic grilled shrimp on the side.

These are some awesome suggestions! Thank you!! Now, I am excited I have 2 large watermelons!

Juice them up in a blender. Strain out the seeds and freeze the juice.
Or have some watermelon Mojitos. Muddle mint, simple syrup....add soda water and rum. Serve with a cucumber wedge garnish.

This Watermelonade is completely addictive. You could probably freeze it.

I just made these. Just so happened I had everything. I tasted it before I poured it into my popsicle molds. Delicious!!

Watermelon sorbet. throw watermelon chunks in in the food processor with some simple syrup, a dash of vodka, maybe some mint or other flavours. Freeze on a baking tray. When frozen, chop it up and put back in the food pro and blend then into a container and re freeze. Boom. Watermelon sorbet
