Cantaloupe are in season and abundant in my area. Five, about three pounds average weight each, were purchased for $2.50 each one. The rind and seeds were removed, the main part was cut into small pieces and cooked until soft and made into a smooth slurry. There was no requirement for straining before placing in liter jars for pressure canning at 15 PSI for 15 minutes for long term storage. The juice obtained is sweet and most pleasant. The seeds were steamed for 15 minutes and put through a Champion Juicer to get the seed ingredients. They make a fine paste similar to peanut butter for toast and are touted to have desirable nutrients. Pictures depict the process.
