Hi, I’m Teca Thompson, Farm-to-Table chef. Today, we’re talking about how to cut cantaloupe into shapes. So, here I have a halved cantaloupe. I’m going to take a regular teaspoon, and I’m just going to pull the seeds out of it, putting them in my other waste bowl right here. And then, I’m just going to cut it a few different ways to show you as an example. So, one is in balls. So, I have a little melon ball right here, and I’m just going to take my melon ball, making little round circles. And, this is really fun for fruit salads or the top of a sorbet or ice cream, with cottage cheese. So, this would be little melon balls. Two is, like, the classic half-moon. So, I’m just going to cut them like this, half-moon like this. And then, I’m going to just cut the rind right off of them. That way, they’re just ready to go. Then, put the rind in the waste bowl. There we go. And then three, I’m just going to do squares. So, instead of half-moon, you want them to be square-shaped. We’re still going to take the rinds off. Put them in the trash. And then, I will just take the cantaloupe and I will cut it into square chunks. Slice, and place them on the plate right here. So, that is three fun, interesting ways to cut cantaloupe. I’m Chef Teca Thompson. That’s how to cut cantaloupe into shapes. Thank you for watching.
