No one should be intimidated by the breaking down of produce, but many are. It is pretty simplistic in nature and everyone has their own method. I tried to keep it as simple as possible. Let me know what you think.
Step 1. Cut both ends off of the cantaloupe.
Step 2. Remove the seeds from the center with a spoon. Be careful not to apply a lot of pressure as you don not want to bruise your fruit. Cut the cantaloupe in to quarters.
Step 3. Using a pairing knife follow the shallow green line between the skin and the fruit all the way around the cantaloupe with your knife slightly inverted at an angle. Remove any unwanted green from the fruit.
Step 4. Humor me for a moment. There was a thunderstorm attacking me a this point so I forgot to take photos of the fruit being cut into eights before chunks. That’s food blogger real life, my friend. Any-who, cut the cantaloupe in to the desired size you would like according to what you are using it for.
I personally enjoy eating any kind of melon with kosher salt. It’s a beautiful marriage of flavors. The sweet and savory makes for a great summer time snack to enjoy while reading a book on the veranda. Sounds Nice! huh?
Cantaloupe is in season from June through August, but you can find it all year round. It’s one of my favorite #summergolds and should be enjoyed before peak season is over. Don’t let it pass you by.
What is your favorite way to eat melon?

This miniature monsoon totally blind-sided me from out of the middle of no where. I thought I would share this with you so you didn’t think it was just fun and games. Who am I kidding? It is most of the time.
