Farmers Market Finds: Piel De Sapo

November 30, 2013

piel de sapoWeird (to me) melon at my farmers market. I’m always up for something I haven’t had! This is called a Piel De Sappo and I was hoping it wasn’t like a squash (ew). I didn’t know until I googled it that it is also called a Santa Claus melon. So yeah, Merry Xmas I guess! I was surprised when I cut it open and it was so pale. I don’t know, I was expecting a green or a different colour. However, this melon was a lot sweeter than a honeydew. I didn’t cook or bake with this melon, it was great as a fruit side. It served as breakfast one day too.

    Cool! You are so lucky to still have your farmer’s market open. I have to wait until spring, and they don’t have much at the beginning of the season. I think I would be in heaven at a Bay Area farmer’s market! I have not had this kind of melon but I will keep my eyes open at Costco, they often have various exotic ones.
