The final recipe I made at Blooming Glen Farm a couple weeks ago used their delicious sweet cantaloupes. I grilled cantaloupe wedges basting with a sweet glaze, then cut the melon into chunks. You could very easily cut it into chunks before grilling and slide onto skewers for a nice serving presentation. Get fancy if you want and garnish it with some minced mint.
However you do it, it's a tasty way to end a meal--especially served with a little ice cream!
GRILLED CANTALOUPE WITH HONEY-CINNAMON GLAZE
1 cantaloupe, seeded and cut into wedges
1/3 cup honey
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
- Preheat grill to high.
- Combine honey, butter, brown sugar and cinnamon in a small saucepan. Heat on grill until butter melts and all are combined. Brush cantaloupe with glaze.
- Place melon on grill and cook until starting to soften, about 1-2 min per side, basting with more glaze as needed.
- Remove from grill and let cool slightly. Remove flesh from rind, cut into chunks to serve. Drizzle with remaining glaze.
