Cantaloupe is sometimes the cause of a listeria outbreak, so give your cantaloupe a good wash before slicing into it.

Why wash if you’re just not eating the skin?Ā When you cut into the skin you cut the bacteria into the flesh.

To remove the rind you need a cutting board and a sharp knife. Place the cutting board on a flat surface and hold onto the melon while cutting.

Once your cantaloupe is washed you can start to cut, the first cut is on the bottom. When you do this you want to create a flat base so the melon can stand up without wobbling or rolling off.

After you cut the bottom you can repeat on the other side and cut off the top.

Take yourĀ knife and start to cut off the rind.

Get as close to the rind as you can, but make sure you’re cutting off the green, try not to cut off too much of the orange flesh.

Keep cutting until all of the cantaloupeĀ rind is removed. Then you can cut the cantaloupe in half.

Scoop out all the seeds until your melon looks like ours below.

Now you can slice your melon into wedges and keep as is or go further and cut it up into chunks.

You can follow ourĀ steps on how to cut a cantaloupe for other melons as well.

Both kids and adults love and enjoy fresh cantaloupe, there’s no reason to buy prepackaged fresh cut fruit from the grocery store. Instead, buy some ripe cantaloupe and cut it up yourself. You make sure it’s fresh and you save some money too!

When you cut up fresh fruit at home you’ll have more too! Store in a glass container with a lid or even a reusable siliconeĀ bag.

Yes! If you can’t finish yourĀ fresh cut cantaloupe you can freeze for later. We usually use frozen cantaloupe for sorbet, smoothies, slushies, or snacking on frozen.

    I never thought of slicing off the bottom to make it easier to cut! I love that idea! And omg you made me so hungry– I want some cantaloupe with a little cayenne sprinkled on top!

    Super informative post and I love your trick for making melon balls and serving it in the other half of the melon. The holidays are coming up next week and since theirs going to be an abundance of unhealthy indulgent foods, it makes so much sense to offer some lighter alternatives. I know that if I prep the fruit like you’ve done — they’ll actually eat it, too. If there’s just a melon sitting on the counter, no one would touch it. LOL!

    This is really great info. I haven’t cut a melon in ages and I bet I did it wrong when I did. I will certainly remember this. I agree with Lisa, a light, healthy alternative to the rich food is desirable. Will certainly give this a try. If I cut this, they will come…

    I’ve never thought about how cutting through the unwashed skin can cut the bacteria into the flesh! I’ll definitely be washing cantaloupe now and all other fruits I normally take the skin off. I should freeze cantaloupe, I’d love to have it handy to put in my smoothies or to make sorbet with.

    Haha, I love this. Honestly. I always look at honeydew and for 1 last update 2020/06/06 cantaloupe at the market and think, “I love eating you, but I don’t want to deal with you.” And I continue on. I think next time I’ll just go for it. Kind of sad to realize how simple this actually is, and that I’ve always done it the hard and annoying way XDHaha, I love this. Honestly.

    I love the step by step photos here! I’m one of those people who love fruit but hate cutting fruit when they’re round haha. Silly, I know! But this made it look way easier than I thought it would be. Great post šŸ™‚

    This is such a great tutorial and I love the video, too! I feel like I’m always flying by the seat of my pants when I’m cutting cantaloupe, so it’s nice to actually know the “right” (or best!) way to do it. I’ll definitely be referencing this!
