How to Eat a Cantaloupe

Summer, the season of healthy and delicious fruit, has officially started. You’ll find a host of fresh berries, melons and assorted fruits at your local grocer, providing a variety of options for breakfast, lunch, snack-time and dessert.

Kick-off the season with these sensory tips for picking the perfect cantaloupe:

  • Look for melons with a lot of yellow in the skin. Pay close attention to the color between the webbed portions of the cantaloupe – if it’s still green the melon hasn’t ripened yet.
  • An ideally ripened melon will be firm, with a bit of give when squeezed. If it’s too firm with no give – it isn’t ripe enough. If it’s too soft and squishy – it’s overripe.
  • If a cantaloupe is ripe it’ll have a sweet aroma – discernible through the skin. If the melon has no odor – it isn’t ripe. If it smells pungent or musty – it’s beyond the prime stage.

A word from some of our home cooks...

I love that DinnerDork changed our lives. No more grabbing random take-out, or trying to cook boring food. Now my husband and I look forward to cooking and eating together. We love it!

There’s a week full of dinner menus, and a shopping list that tells me exactly where to find each item in the store. The recipe instructions are easy to follow. I just log in and shop from the list on my phone, then log in and make dinner from the recipes each night.

The food is so good! I’ve tried so many foods and food pairings that I wouldn’t have tried on my own. I’m becoming the foodie I’ve always wanted to be, except that it’s so simple – all of the hard work is done for me.
