Cantaloupes mainly hit the marketplace close to April. And they peak in the summer months of June through September. A few days ago, I was fortunate to garner one of these specimens. Took it home and decided to leave it on the counter for a few days.
Lo and behold, when I entered my kitchen, a fragrant aroma hit my senses. Without a doubt, that was a sure sign that my fruit was ready for consumption. I placed same in the refrigerator for chilling for a few hours.
Later on, I chopped the golden fruit in halves and just as I thought, it was super ripe and ready for my palate. Moreover, on a taste of a slice, I’m happy to report that it was very sweet and juicy. Decided to cut up a portion and paired it with finely chopped ginger root. With the addition of a pint of cool water and a squeeze of lemon, I had the perfect and refreshing drink of the day.
