INGREDIENT OF THE MONTH: CANTALOUPE MELONS

Make the most of this great-tasting ingredient in store now

NEED TO KNOW

Despite its sweet flavour, this summer fruit is low in sugar and calories and has a high water content, helping you to stay hydrated. Mini cantaloupes are even sweeter, with firm, deep orange flesh and a fragrant, aromatic flavour.

HOW TO…

Keep cool with melon, pineapple and mint ice lollies or try a chilled cantaloupe gazpacho garnished with crab. For a simple, good-looking salad, arrange disks of cantaloupe on plates and top with mozzarella slices, mint and toasted almonds.

TOP TIP

Mini cantaloupes are perfect for breakfast or lunchboxes – slice one in half for an edible single-serving fruit bowl.
