"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 ."
"I found this recipe to taste great but it took forever for it to set up. I believe some of the instructions are missing. I had to add 1 1/2 cups more of sugar in the end to get it to set. It is a great hit with my family though."
"Nice. I used less sugar than called for, so it never quite fully set; it has a more preserve-ish consistency, but it's good! Thanks for sharing."
"I tried this using a cantaloupe from my father's garden. The color was beautiful and cheery and the recipe was very easy to follow. It set up fine as well. The reason I did not give it a full 5 stars is because I'm not a really huge fan of cantaloupe. I like the fruit and do enjoy eating it but the flavor of the fruit is intensified a bit with cooking so I think only a dedicated cantaloupe fan would truly love this. Aside from on toast and what not, the flavor could be appreciated if mixed with whipped cream and spread between layers of cake. Thanks for sharing this recipe!"
