Casaba Melon

(Melon, Casaba)  Casaba melons have a bright yellow and somewhat shriveled looking or wrinkled skin, with a flat bottom and tapered stem end.  Some casabas may be oblong in shape.  Casaba melons have a juicy, ivory to slightly pinkish colored inner flesh with a delicate fruity flavor.  Casaba melons ripen well on the counter top, but it is always best to purchase vine ripened melons.  When the bottom skin or the stem end yields to light pressure, the casaba is ripe.  See the nutritional chart for more information.

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-34)
