    Default Choosing A Cantaloupe


    Itís important to buy a fully ripe cantaloupe if possible, because once
    they have been picked they wonít get any sweeter. They should be round
    and pale yellow, and feel heavy for their size. If they have any green
    color they are not ripe. There shouldnít be any stem, but there will be
    a scar where it was attached to the plant. If the melon was picked when
    it was mature, the stem end will be smooth with no roughness around the
    scar. Press your thumb lightly on the blossom end; it should make a
    slight indentation. Overall softness or large bruises will affect the
    quality of the fruit. When all this checks out, the final step is to
    smell it on the blossom end. It should have a sweet smell, like you
    would want it to taste.

    Oh Selma, Selma, Selma. What would we do without your astounding
    knowledge on how to buy a cantaloupe? I'm filing this information
    along side the house insurance policy and other important papers.
    Can't be too careful, ya' know, lest this get away from me.

    It's a hell of a lot more on topic and informative than the daily prolific
    off-topic garbage spews, spam reposts, troll replies, and gratuitous sniping
    we get from Somebother, Tommy Joe, Andy, Middiot, and Motofool. Even if she
    was just posting as a class assignment, at least she said something topical,
    correct and useful, responded to no spammers or trolls, didn't obsessively
    stalk any objects of her hatred, and asked no stupid questions. I'd gladly
    trade in all five of the above named stooges for one Selma.

    Just sayin'.

    Are you having a hard time choosing a ripe cantaloupe?? I see you
    seem to be a bit miffed that I snipped Selma's 'helpful information'
    when I replied to her several days ago. Maybe you need to copy her
    'useful' information and send it to yourself in an e-mail. Print it
    and then tape it to the 'fridge at your house.

    No, I just didn't think the clip and rip of Selma's post was warranted,
    relatively speaking.

    And Selma has a loverly pair of cantaloupes...

    Cantaloupe Sorbet Bon Appťtit

    (Sorbetto al Melone)

    Yield: Serves 6

    2/3 cup sugar
    1/2 cup water
    3 cups 1-inch pieces peeled seeded cantaloupe (about 1/2 cantaloupe)

    Combine sugar and water in medium saucepan. Stir over medium heat
    until sugar dissolves. Bring to boil. Transfer to 11x7x2-inch glass
    dish and chill until cold, about 2 hours.

    Puree cantaloupe in blender until smooth. Add to sugar syrup in dish
    and stir until well blended. Freeze until almost firm, stirring
    occasionally, at least 3 hours or overnight.

    Transfer cantaloupe mixture to large bowl. Using electric mixer, beat
    until fluffy. Return to freezer and freeze until firm (do not stir),
