Canteloupe Juice

This is from one of Diana Kennedy's books.
You scoop out the seeds and goo from the center of a cantaloupe melon and put it in your blender jar. Add three spoonfuls of sugar (or honey, or agave syrup, I would think), juice of a small lime and fill with water. Blend. Rest in fridge overnight and then blend again. Strain and drink.
I love these something-for-nothing types of recipes.

  1. Cool. And there’s no bitterness from the pulverized seeds?

  2. Interesting! A lot of old Orgeat recipes used some portion of melon seeds. This, I would think, would be quite similar.

  3. No bitterness. It tastes almost milky.
    Erik- is there a commercial orgeat syrup you’d recommend?
