Watermelon Bacon
  • ½ medium watermelon
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • lime juice - optional
  1. Preheat oven to 170° F (77° C).
  2. Slice watermelon into very thin strips, around ⅛-inch in thickness, remove and discard green rind. Pat dry with paper towels.
  3. Arrange watermelon slices on 2 baking trays, covered with parchment paper, and sprinkle with salt, paprika and lime juice, if using. Place trays on racks positioned in the upper and lower ⅓ of your oven. Let dry for 5 hours, flip pieces and rotate trays. Dry for another 2-3 hours, or until dry and chewy. Alternatively, use a dehydrator - dry watermelon strips on mesh screen trays for 8-12 hours, at 135° F.
