Buy Honeydew melon online
Look for a melon with a creamy white or pale cream rind. You should be able to smell the aroma if it's fully ripened. If it's not quite ripe, let the melon sit at room temperature for a few days

Melons are ripe if they give slightly when pressed at the opposite end of the stalk. Some summer melons smell fragrant when ripe.
Keep whole melons at room temperature for maximum flavour. Cut melon must be well-wrapped and chilled, otherwise its scent will permeate the fridge.
Dessert melons have a very high water content and fragile flesh. They are best eaten raw and treated very simply. Ripe melons shouldnt need any extra sweetening but use lemon or lime juice to bring out their sweetness if necessary. Mint, ginger, pear, cucumber, cured ham, strawberries and raspberries each taste good with melon. They also make good sorbet and ice cream.
To prepare melons, cut them in half and remove their seeds. If wished, strain the extra juice from the seeds. Rinse the seeds, dry and lightly roast as a salty snack. Their peel can be sliced off, along with a thin layer of hard flesh, leaving the sweet flesh.
