Tastes like sunshine in a jar! My mom loves cantaloupes and was thrilled to receive a jar for Christmas. Yummy on hot biscuits! This is a Southern, Californian and Mexican/Tex Mex recipe. Melons are grown in these places!

This recipe is great,next time I will triple it.It took 2 hours to simmer down.I,m waiting for more of my cantelopes to ripen and will make more.I did add the 11/2 cups of sugar extra .


  1. Place the cantaloupe in a bowl and add the lemon juice and rind.
  2. Pour the sugar over the top and let stand overnight.
  3. Transfer to a large kettle and cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until thick.
  4. Let cool to room temperature, then stir to keep the fruits evenly distributed.
  5. Pour in hot sterilized glasses and seal.
