I have to share a funny story that happened with this recipe. I hunted all over Spokane looking for cheesecloth or the bags that you use when you make jelly to strain the seeds out and did not find any. I ended up having to Macgyver a straining system. I used coffee filters and a pasta strainer to strain the watermelon juices. It was an interesting set up but thankfully it worked.
