RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE
WATERMELON BOWL, American
Choose melon according to number of guests expected. For large group, choose large melon and increase amounts of other fruits. To scallop melon: First make sure melon sits firmly and level. If necessary, prop melon with wedges of rind to secure it. Using a small glass and a pencil, draw scallops around the melon. With a sharp knife, cut the scallops; pry off top. Cut flesh of melon into chunks. Remove seeds. Mix with other fruits. Replace in shell and pour over fruit the Collins Punch and allow to marinate ½ hour before serving.

Many of these wonderful recipes are ones I stumbled upon quite by accident while sleuthing through the decades in my quest to assemble the world of the American housewife. RH
