How to Quickly Ripen Cantaloupes

ripen cantaloupesMy daughter loves cantaloupe, but I used to stay away from them unless it was melon season- summer.  That is until I learned a little trick:

If you buy a cantaloupe at the store and sniff it, you can tell it’s ripe if you get a whiff of that sweet cantaloupe smell. However, if you don’t smell anything it means the cantaloupe isn’t ripe.  Never fear…Put it in the cart anyways!

Bring it home and wrap it in a grocery bag.  Leave the cantaloupe in a cool, dark place for 24-48 hours.  When you take it out, give it a smell and you will find it’s ripe. Works like a charm every time and we’ve been enjoying the melon all winter and spring.
