The cantaloupe is done and is it ever good! I was afraid it wasn’t going to be awesome because the cantaloupe weren’t great. If they had been on a buffet, I would not have gone back for a second slice but since we had them, I went ahead and cut them up and freeze dried them.
This is easily as sweet as candy. I had to try one or two pieces, then slap my hand and walk away. I could easily have eaten an entire jar. When we buy cantaloupe, it’s rare (1) that it’s REALLY good and (2) that we eat the entire thing before it goes bad. None of this will go to waste.
I can see putting a few pieces of this in a blender for my morning smoothie. When I walk through the store this winter and cantaloupes are $3.99 each and they look horribly green, I’ll just smile and keep walking. I think Vince got these on sale for 49¢ each and there were six of them.
It took 56 hours and 7 minutes . . start to finish.
Next load . . not real sure yet. I’m sure I’ll come up with something by morning.
