Cantaloupe Candy!Posted: August 27, 2011
Get ready, get set, start your dehydrators . . . this is the most amazing treat ever! Friday I visited the Green River Melon stand on the North end of Springville and purchased a couple of cantaloupes. These cantaloupes are not anything like the melons from the supermarket. They are picked ripe from the vine and are absolutely splendiferous!
Here’s a recipe that will rival even the best candy! I’m really looking forward to opening a jar in the middle of winter and letting out all that summer.
1 large cantaloupe, cut into 3″ x 1/2″ pieces
2 large limes
1 or 2 cups of powdered sugar depending on your tastebuds
Juice the limes into a bowl and mix in the powdered sugar. Dip each section of cantaloupe into the sugar mixture and place side by side in a food dehydrator. Dry for about 24 hours at 115 degrees. If you have any left over after tasting them, store in an air tight jar.
