Favorite New Recipe: Watermelon Jerky

We asked Molly Siegler, our food editor, to share one of her favorite new recipes coming out of our test kitchen.

I am having a mild obsession with this super-fun Watermelon Jerky, and because the recipe uses such a low oven, I am planning to make it all summer long with no fear of heating up the kitchen. I love that this is a really savory way to have watermelon, and it ends up truly tasting like jerky because of the sea salt, black pepper and smoked paprika "cure." Seriously … my next move will be adding this to a watermeloned up version of a Bloody Mary for brunch!

As a classically trained chef with a political science degree, Molly puts her food fascination to work coordinating the creation and curation of recipes and other food-focused content for Whole Foods Market. Nothing excites Molly more than discovering a fun new food combination or tradition.
