    Do you put salt on melons?

    Hope I am putting this on the right channel.

    Watermelon, cantaloupe, etc? Do you salt before you eat? It is a raging debate in this area.

    Yes.

      Yes, I think light salt makes them a lot better.

        Yup, awakens the taste buds

          I typically don’t. But I love prosciutto wrapped cantaloupe, so I made an “engineered” version using a vacuum infusion of water, salt and liquid smoke. No prosciutto necessary ( and kosher too, not that I care!).

            So you think you're just going to drop vacuum infused cantaloupe in her and walk away? Details man. We need details!

            I'll have to see if I can find my recipe. Do you have a chamber vac?

            I have a recipe for that. Throw away the cantaloupe and eat the prosciutto.

          Hail no. Not necessary not ever. Even though my wife is a philistine who insists on it.

            With smoked salt and a light application I will do it on watermelon sometimes, the only other melon I regularly consume is cantaloupe and I won't salt that, never even thought of it but my brain says I'm not allowed to even try

                Yes … although not needed if some nice, salty prosciutto is involved …

                  Didn't think it was possible to eat melons or cantaloupe without salt.

                    Depends, do you have some thinly sliced prosciutto or Spanish ham? If so, no additional salt needed :-)

                  #11
                  Nope. Sometimes a little Tajin, though depending on the melon. I once spent a few weeks staying with a family in Louisiana. They would cut open a honeydew melon every evening. They would taste it to see how sweet it was. If it was sweet enough they would just eat it like that. If it didn't pass muster they would put salt and pepper on it.

                    I grew up eating melons that way. But now I prefer to taste plain melons, the way God intended.

                      how do you know that God didn't give us salt intending that we should put it on melons?

                    #13
                    I swing from both sides of the plate on salted melons. Just depends on the mood I guess.

                      Yes but very light. Wakes up the flavors as noted above. Very light…..

                          Pepper on cantelope is good. I've never tried it on watermelon.
