Cooling Drinks Series: Watermelon Skin Drink
Did you know that you can boil the skin of watermelon to produce a type of drink that will soothe your body system? Heh yes... you heard it right? It's watermelon skin!!!
Before cutting up a watermelon (red preferabily as it's sweeter, I've tried with yellow and it doesn't taste as fragrant and sweet) wash and scrub the skin clean of any dirt and grubs. Cut it up and reserve the red meat portion to be eaten as usual. It's ok to leave the white part together with the skin. Cut them into small pieces and place in a big pot. Fill up with water, doubled the height of the skins. Boil them in low heat for a couple of hours or even three. Sweeten with rock sugar if necessary. Discard the skins and drink the concoction warm or cold.
This drink has "yoon" (moistening/strengthening??) property. Trust me, this drink taste utmost fragrant and delicious!
