Market Watch: Casaba Melon

by in Farmers' Market Finds, August 12, 2010

melon sorbet

This dazzling lemon-yellow melon is new to my kitchen. After a taste, I am a loyal fan.

A relative of cantaloupe, casaba tastes similar, but not quite as sweet. One cup has less than 50 calories, 2 grams of fiber and more than 60 percent of your daily dose of vitamin C. Add to a fresh salad, wrap with thin slices of salty prosciutto, or for our frozen treats week, make a cool and refreshing batch of melon sorbet.

Recipes to Try:

Melon Sorbet
Melon Wrapped in Prosciutto
