Melon: bit boring really
Apart from those lovely smelly French ones that remind me of a small Parisian apartment with no air-conditioning and too many cats in the summertime, melons are pretty much the dullest of fruits, n'est-ce pas? The Times offers up five things to do with them. The suggestions are fine, but to my point, not particularly inspired. Melon is used in Southern California as a filler fruit. That is, if you order fruit for breakfast, you'll find a few expensive berries on top and a thick underlayer of bland chunks of whitish-orange melon which dares you to eat it. I'm willing to have my mind changed. Anyone? Melon Basil Gazpacho?
