An Easy Recipe For Breakfast Bowls With Cantaloupe

This is an easy recipe for breakfast bowls with cantaloupe, but you can make this with honeydew, watermelon, or any other type of melon that you have on hand too.  

Do you know how to tell if a cantaloupe is ripe?

There are 3 things you should be looking for when trying to tell if a cantaloupe is ripe. Using these guidelines you should be able to select the sweetest, ripest California cantaloupes that your store or farmstand has on display.

A cantaloupe is ripe when…

  • The blossom end is slightly softer and starting to crack.
  • There is some netting growing up the stem.
  • It has a creamy color – they can have more of a green cast.

How to properly handle, store, and prepare cantaloupe at home.

After you bring your cantaloupe home it is important to always follow safe handling and storing guidelines.

California cantaloupe farmers work hard to provide us with the safest melons in the world. California cantaloupes are grown under a stringent food safety program that requires growers to pass a government food safety audit with 180 different checkpoints in their fields and another 150 checkpoint audit in their cooling facilities! That is a whole bunch of checkpoints!

Since California cantaloupe growers are doing their part to keep melons safe please do your part by following the simple handling and storing guidelines below at home.

Safe handling and storing guidelines for cantaloupes at home.

  • Wash cantaloupe with running water before cutting into it. Use a scrub brush to thoroughly clean the rind.
  • Use a clean knife and cutting board when preparing cantaloupe to prevent contamination from other foods.
  • After cutting, store cantaloupe in the refrigerator in plastic wrap or a sealed container.
