Question: What can you cook with canary melon?

July 29, 2010
I have a very large canary melon sitting on my counter. Anyone ever had one? Any thoughts on what I should do with it?

They're very nice & sweet.
You can use it anywhere you might be using honeydew or cantaloupe melon.
You could make a melon granita, melon coolers, melon salsa, melon wrapped with proscuitto, melon soup, chop it up and serve it with greek yogurt, make a crab & melon salad with fresh lime and basil, puree it and strain it and make margaritas, melon & ginger sorbet, melon and arugula salad, melon ice cream,
melon agua fresca, or a light chicken and melon salad with a tangy vinaigrette.
