Melon Conduciveness ~1904

Eating Melon.

The premise is thus: Not all melons are ripe when you cut them open, so to make them edible, first take out a small slice; next, pour in sherry, champagne, or brandy. Replace the slice, rotate the melon gently to make sure the liquor is evenly distributed. Chill. Serve.

Cantaloup obviously has a different flavor palate than honeydew. Thoughts on pairings with this one?

Love the way this is written.
