Taster's Cherce

Now a melon is something I want to like more than I actually do. I used to dislike them but I can’t say that is true anymore. And yeah, have had it with cured ham and that’s a winning combination. But I never crave a melon. Watermelon, sure, but a regular old melon? Nah. It’s just…”eh,” for me.

That said, this picture makes me want to like ‘em.

Interesting. I know what you mean -- there's a kind of blandness and even starchiness to them, too much for a fruit.
But I do like true cantaloupes in the morning.
And what about honeydew?

I've tried, I've really tried to like them, but I just don't dig the taste. A lot of stuff that's good for you turns out to be an "acquired taste".

[2] Maybe its because I've been eating both honeydew and cantaloupe since I was little, but I love 'em both. Sweet, juicy, and delicious. It does take some skill to pick a good one out at the grocery store, and you really have to eat them within a couple of days or the flavor disappears.

[0] AB, have you tried either honeydew or cantaloupe with real (i.e. imported) prosciutto? Done right, its to die for. I also suggest cutting up either melon and mixing it with fresh blueberries.

3) I have and that I like. The blueberries sounds appealing too. I tend to like sweet and tart mixed together, so berries are usually a hit for me.
