- Honeydew Mellon -

(Honeydew Melon)  The honeydew melon is one of the winter variety of melons, which also include Persian, casaba, and Crenshaw melons.  The honeydew has a smooth rind with green pulp.  Select honeydew melons that are free of blemishes.  When the ends of the melon can be depressed slightly, they are usually ripe.  We have also found that with ripe honeydew melons we can hear the seeds rattle when the melon is shaken firmly.  They will ripen on the kitchen counter, can can be stored in the refrigerator for several days.  See the nutritional chart below.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-11)
