Yet Another New Melon – Carari/Canary Winter Melon

When we were at my favorite fruit stand a couple of days ago I checked the melon bin, and they had a melon that I had never heard of before – a Canari melon.  So, of course, I had to buy one!  When I got home, I googled it, and found that it’s mostly spelled with a “y” on the internet.  It’s called canary because it’s Yellow!  And it’s a winter melon which basically means that it ripens late in the summer and keeps better for shipping.

I cut it open and it turned out to be a pretty creamy color, with just a little green tinge close to the skin.  The seeds came out very easily, and then I peeled and cut it up.  It tastes like melon – lol – and it is quite sweet, I really like this one a lot.

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.
