This is one of Jerry's Favorite flavors, but they never figured out how to make it in large batches.

It's sold only in their downtown store.

Cut the cantaloupe in half and clean out the seeds.

Scoop the fruit into a mixing bowl, add the lemon juice, and mash until the fruit is purred.

Drain the juice into another bowl and reserve.

Cover the melon purée and refrigerate.

Prepare the sweet cream base and whisk in the fruit juice.

Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer's instructions.

After the ice cream stiffens, about 2 minutes before it is done, add the cantaloupe.

if more juice has accumulated, do not pour it in because it will water down the ice cream.

Continue freezing until the ice cream is ready.

Makes 1 generous quart.

Variation: COCONUT CANTALOUPE: Use half the amount of cantaloupe and lemon juice asked for in step 1.

Add 1 cup coconut cream, such as Coco Lopez, to the Sweet cream Base in step 2.

Complete the recipe as directed.

It's hard to not delicious when it comes to ice cream. This recipe pops up around summer every year, I finally made it, and needless to say it tasted wonderfully delicious.

I did forget to add lemon juice into the custard mixture, which was a shame. Otherwise it would be even better. Tons of cantaloupe flavor, so if you are a big fan of this fruit, you should definitely make this ice cream.

Because quite a bit juice being added, you need to let it thaw for about 10 minutes before you serve it, which allows it to soften.
