How to Cut a cantaloupe
A subtly sweet melon, cantaloupe is a refreshing summertime snack. See the different ways to cut a cantaloupe, from chunks to slices. You know your cantaloupe is ripe when it: yields to slight pressure, has yellowish skin, has a fresh aroma at the end where the stem was attached, has a healthy outer rind free of tears or cuts. Be sure to refrigerate the sliced melon in plastic bags or airtight containers within 2 hours of cutting it.
