Care to sample my melons?
One of the best things about spring & summer is that certain fruits which are available year round suddenly taste like something. They are no longer just a bland blah wimpy version of themselves. Melons of all kinds fall into that category. Honeydew & cantaloupe appear in my grocery store all year but aren't worth the money. The taste and texture lack that juicy, sweetly aromatic flavor that melons provide. Having had more luck introducing new fruit during their usual season, we did melon tasting last week. I cheated slightly by going for convenience and buying the pre-cut melon cubes. This also would not leave me with a large amount of melon to consume if they weren't liked. We tried watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe, and this weird little one I bought on impulse called Pepino melon.
