    Dreamgoddess's Note:

    From an old southern cookbook comes this recipe that's perfect to serve on hot summer days. I love to serve this when we grill out. I've also served this at breakfast alongside pancakes and waffles.

      The cantaloupe was sweet and had a slight tang. I would have like more of the spices to come through. I`m not sure if my cinnamon and cloves were wippy or the syrup should have been simmered longer. But I did enjoy a lot! Very refreshing. This would be great to use on those melons that just isn`t sweet or ripe enough!

      I made this with seedless watermelon and cantaloupe, about 50/50. Very attractive - and totally scrumptious! A great blend of flavours! I made this for the Healthy for the Holidays Challenge. It’s recipes like this that help me stay on track: low in fat but SO delicious that there’s no way one can feel deprived! Thanks for sharing! I'll be making this again and again.
