A tutorial on how to cut one of my favorite fruits, cantaloupe.
After I wrote my post on How to Select and Cut a Ripe Avocado, I figured there are probably a whole slew of other fruits that people may be uncertain about how to cut. After all, I was in that boat at one point too. And then I thought, “I should share my ways with people!” (even if they are only what I consider to be the best ways). Up next for my “how to cut” tutorial series is one of my all-time favorite fruits…
How to Cut a Cantaloupe
This particular post is dedicated to my mom. I thought of her when I decided to write it. While I was home over the Fourth of July, we were shopping together at the grocery store. She put a container of pre-cut cantaloupe into our cart and I am pretty sure my mouth dropped open 😉 I explained to her that she could buy an entire cantaloupe for less than the price of that small container. Her response, however, was that she did not know how to cut a cantaloupe. I happily cut the one that we purchased, but now she has no excuse not to buy the whole cantaloupe next time!
How do you cut your cantaloupe? I know some people slice it with the rind on, but I have never tried that.
