Enjoying cantaloupe in season

Two cantaloupe wedgesYou can find local, Massachusetts grown cantaloupe in August and September.  Look for sweet-smelling melons with no soft spots.  Wash them before you cut them. And once they’re cut, keep them in the refrigerator for a quick, juicy treat!  Did you know that one cup of fresh cantaloupe has all the Vitamin A and Vitamin C you need in a day, with only 60 delicious calories?  Top a wedge with chicken salad for a light lunch, or with frozen yogurt for dessert.  They are also great in smoothies and fruit kabobs!
