Yield: 4 Servings

1 cup Simple syrup (recipe follows)
2 tablespoons Fresh lemon juice

⅔ cup Water

SIMPLE SYRUP

From: greg@... (Gregory Larkin) Date: Mon, 23 Aug 93 14:28:46 EDT Cut the ripe cantaloupe fresh into chunks and puree them in a food processor to measure about 3 cups. Stir in the syrup and lemon juice. Taste carefully. If the melon is not fully ripe, you may want to add a little more syrup. Cover and freeze the fruit puree in ice cube trays [we needed 2½ trays worth].

When frozen, place several cubes at a time into a food processor and puree until smooth. Process as many cubes as you want and enjoy! [One tray's worth of cubes was about 2 servings].

Simple Syrup: Put the water and sugar in a pot and bring to a boil. Lower the heat, cover and cook at a gentle boil for 4 to 5 minutes. Make sure the sugar is completely dissolved. Add the lemon juice and let cool. Use in above recipe. Makes about 1 cup.
