Cantaloupe is a sweet melon chock full of vitamins, fiber, and minerals. This orange-fleshed melon is surrounded by a webbed protective peel.
When purchasing, try to find a symmetrical cantaloupe without obvious bruising. A good melon will be fragrant and feel heavy. Keep it chilled in the refrigerator (or even freezer) for a refreshing treat.
The easiest way to eat cantaloupe is simple to slice it up and eat it fresh! For variety, pair it with some vanilla ice cream or custard, dry the seeds and snack on them, or wrap some of the fruit in prosciutto.
