When I was a child we would take summer trips to my grandparents’ farm. They always had glorious vegetable and fruit gardens, and one of my favorite things was the fresh cantaloupe. Back then, in the golden days, cantaloupe was seasonal and not available year-round as it is today. So the summer harvest of melons was a great time for treats.
One of our favorite desserts was a cantaloupe with vanilla ice cream in the center. Mom would serve that during the summer, and it was always a welcomed finale to dinner. It is simple to fix and will garner great reviews from your family and friends.
I hope you enjoy this summer treat! All you’ll need to recreate it is cantaloupe and ice cream. How simple is that?
Do you have a favorite childhood treat that you still make each summer?
