Sweet Cantaloupe

They are on sale this week at the market.

Those delicious sweet cantaloupe melons.

Two of them went into the cart, and we are enjoying the second one with our dinner.

The orange flesh is loaded with vitamin C and they also provide a healthy dose of antioxidants.

One word of caution though, they need to be thoroughly washed before any slices are made into the skin.

Their irregular, bumpy skin hides and carries bacteria, especially the salmonella kind.

Washing and drying it helps to reduce contamination, and consuming the fruit within a couple days of cutting it is best.

A healthy sweet treat to be sure, and a good deal this week too!
