Bermuda Watermelon and
Goat’s Cheese Wheel
Sweet and delicious Bermuda watermelon sprinkled with
Tucker’s Farm Hay Jude cheese and topped with mint from the
garden—a surprisingly delicious combination of flavours in
a fun and practical presentation. When asked about growing local watermelon, farmer Tom Wadson explains that
watermelon needs “virgin land” which is a precious commodity. Wadson says “We are planting on land this year that has
grown nothing but grass, chickens and sheep for five years. It
was abandoned for over 20 years before that. Fingers crossed
for a bumper crop of jumbo sweeties!” Wadson’s crop—both
seeded and unseeded—will be ready mid-July.
1. Slice whole watermelon into one-inch wheels; then
slice again into single-serving wedges and arrange to
complete a circle.
2. Sprinkle generously with Hay Jude goat’s cheese and top
with julienned mint.
