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?
Or substitute watermelon for the grapefruit in the following "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
