Another of our favorite starters here at Northern Comfort! This is super simple, but a great way to dress up cantaloupe — whether you’re looking for something special or have a not-quite-sweet enough melon on your hands.

  1. One Cantaloupe
  2. 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  3. 2 tablespoons honey
  4. 1 pinch cinnamon (around 1/8 teaspoon)
  5. High quality balsamic vinegar (dark chocolate or blackberry ginger are particularly tasty!)
  1. Use a melon baller or cut melon into cubes... aim for about 4 cups of melon. If you're a bit short fill in with berries -- strawberries and blueberries are particularly good!
  2. Whisk together lemon juice, honey and cinnamon. Toss fruit in glaze and let sit for at least 15 minutes.
  3. Before serving, drizzle with balsamic vinegar -- our favorites are Dark Chocolate or Blackberry Ginger**
  1. We get our balsamic oils from Staunton Olive Oil Company, friend (and client) of innkeeper-Patty. SOOC is a great little family owned business in Staunton, Virginia, our previous hometown. You can order Dark Chocolate and/or Blackberry Ginger on their site!
