RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE

SALAD

CANTALOUPE PICKLES, American

Ingredients
  • 6 medium cantaloupes
  • Salted water
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 4 cups water
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 2 sticks cinnamon, 1 tbsp. whole cloves, 1 tbsp. allspice (Put together in a cheese cloth bag)
Preparation Instructions

Use cantaloupes which are slightly under-ripe. Cut into desired pieces (about 1-inch square) and remove rind. Soak in salted water for 2 to 3 hours; water should cover the cantaloupe. (Use 4 tbsp. salt to each quart of water.) Drain water from cantaloupe and boil it in the syrup for 10 minutes, then let stand in the syrup overnight. Drain the syrup from the cantaloupe and boil syrup until it coats a spoon. Add cantaloupe and cook very slowly until clear (about 1 hour). Pack pickles into jars, add syrup to cover and seal.
