Comments On - Make It Work: Cooking with Under-Ripe Melons

Speaking of melons. A couple of years ago I was on an 11-day/75-mile hike in NM. On the trail saw a plant similar to a melon. More specific, looks like a watermelon, though at the time (July) it was a little smaller than a golf ball. Wonder if it is a "wild watermelon"? Everything points directly to a watermelon; the leaves, the stripes.

All that heat in Vegas probably means very sweet melons for you!

Very interesting ideas. I can honestly say that I have never tried these variations before, but they sound do good, I can't wait.

I'm a big fan of growing melons in hard-to-get-to places in my yard. They make a great ground cover and provide lots of fodder for my compost machines, plus you get those yummy melons to eat.

Thanks for the great ideas.

Yes, I know that butternut squash and melons are in the same plant family, but it doesn't make much visual sense to illustrate an article about melons with a picture of winter squash! If the author really has too many underripe melons in her garden, she should photograph them, otherwise her story isn't as believable.
