In the Kitchen with Lisa and Brian: N.C. melons

by | Sep 3, 2009

WRAL reporter Brian Shrader and our own Lisa Prince feature seasonal recipes in their Got to Be Good Cookin’ segment using ingredients grown and available right here in North Carolina. We’ll post each video here, along with links to the recipes.

This week in the Got to Be NC kitchen, Lisa shows Brian a few of her favorite tricks for eating North Carolina melons:

You have lots of options here with all the fresh melons we grow in North Carolina.  If you have a melon baller, then you can scoop out a variety of melons and put them on skewers, or you can fill up your empty melon rind to make a colorful combination in a great container.  Don’t have a melon baller? Cube it up and do the same thing. Another great option for the cantaloupe is to slice it and wrap it with prosciutto ham and put it on a skewer.  The sweet cantaloupe with the salty ham is a savory pair.
