Southern Cantaloupe with Cinnamon (1987)

  • 7 lbs cantaloupe
  • 2 cups vinegar
  • 2 cups water
  • 3 lbs sugar
  • 8 sticks cinnamon
  • 8 whole cloves
Peel off rind and cut cantaloupes into 1-inch cubes. Soak overnight in vinegar and water.

In the morning, add sugar, cinnamon, and cloves. Bring to a rapid boil, then reduce heat and simmer 1 1/2 hours or until cantaloupe becomes almost transparent. 

Place in clear, sterile jars and seal. Make 5 to 6 1-lb jars.
