A Few Cantaloupe Recipes

I’ve tried all of these recipes and the one we really like is Cantaloup in Lemon or Pineapple. Cantaloupe gets a bit mushy sometimes so use not-quite-ripe melons for canning. We like canned cantaloupe but some don’t so try it and see if your bunch likes it!


Canned Cantaloupe

Fill hot quart jars with diced cantaloupe. To each jar add

1/2 cup sugar and 3 tablespoons vinegar.
Fill with water. Some prefer to add one
stick of cinnamon to each jar.

Seal jars and water bath for 1 hour or
pressure can for 12 minutes at 5
pounds pressure.


Cantaloupe Jelly

• 1 pound cantaloupe
• 1 pound sugar
• 1 lemon

Chop up the cantaloupe and combine
in a large kettle with the sugar and
lemon. Cook until thick.

Seal in 1/2 pint jars and water bath for

30 minutes.

Cantaloupe in Lemon

• 1 pound cantaloupe
• 1 pound sugar
• 1 lemon

In a quart jar place the juice of 1
lemon, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water.
Fill with cubed cantaloupe.

Boil in water bath canner for 15
minutes.

Instead of lemon juice try using 6
chunks of pineapple and a little
pineapple juice.

Cantaloupe With Cinnamon

• 1 pound cantaloupe
• 1 pound sugar
• Cinnamon stick for every jar, cut to fit the jar
• Lemon juice

In a quart jar place the cinnamon stick, 1 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon lemon juice and 1 cup water.
Fill with cubed cantaloupe.

Boil in water bath canner for 15
minutes.
