This week at the market we're highlighting The Anthill Farm's cantaloupe harvest. For maximum refresh power, try blending them into a beverage like this!
How to make:
Cantaloupe Agua Fresca
1 small cantaloupe, around 2-3#'s (about 3 cups of cut melon)
1.5 - 2 cups water depending on your desired sweetness
1 tbsp of honey
tiny pinch of salt
Prep: Remove melon seeds and cut off rind. If you're working with a younger cook, they could scoop the flesh out instead of chop.
Blend: Melon, water, lime juice, honey, and a pinch of salt until pureed.
Wait: Let the mixture chill for about an hour and some of the foam will disappear. If you'd rather not have this cantaloupe "crema" on top, strain for more a pulp-free juice consistency.
For a twist, serve with a sprinkle of salt and chili powder on top.
Enjoy and happy cookings!
