Pan-Fried Watermelon

Recipe by  

"I hate to waste anything, so when my watermelon vines with melons on them were dying, I took unripe small melons, washed, partly peeled, sliced, and cooked them in butter, of course! The result was surprising, indeed. It is a wonderful addition to any dish, breakfast eggs, lunch, or dinner. A sweet, very juicy flavor similar to zucchini. Loved it."
