Drunken Melon Marinade Recipe for Flavorless Cantaloupe and Honeydew

Serve the best cantaloupe and honeydew melons ever!  Use Drunken Melon Marinate and never again throw out flavorless cantaloupe and honeydew melons; or simply use this recipe to enhance already good melons.  We here at the Amish Country Ohio, Barn InnBed and Breakfast, had often thrown out flavorless melons. Never again.  We flavor them up with our signature recipe for Drunken Melon Marinade.  One of our guests last week remarked, “This is the best honeydew I’ve ever eaten.” 


Drunken Melon Marinade
1 ½ cups Passion Fruit Rum
½ cup granulated sugar
1 flavorless cantaloupe or honeydew

Place Passion Fruit Rum in a saucepan and boil for about 1 minute.  Remove from heat and add sugar.  Stir sugar until dissolved then cool the liquid.
Cut a flavorless cantaloupe or honeydew into desired serving-size pieces and place into a bowl.  When marinade is cool, pour over the melon, cover the melon bowl, and place in the refrigerator.  There may not be enough liquid to cover all of the melon pieces.  They are best if they are marinated over night or for at least 8 hours.  I like to occasionally stir them so that all of the melon pieces get flavored.

We often use the marinade twice; after marinading one melon, place another melon in the marinade.  Always be mindful of food safety.  We never use the same marinade longer than one week.  Enjoy.  Please try this and let me know how you like it.
