Have you ever heard the saying, do as I say and not as I do? Well, please apply that to my past cantaloupe post. And what I'm saying is, DO NOT process cantaloupe in a water bath canner. You need a pressure canner for that. Trust me on this. I ruined several jars of cantaloupe discovering this. Turns out, the amount of lemon juice that goes into the jars is not enough to acidify it to safe levels. Also? Don't use a canning book from the 1960s that might not have the best, up to date information! Lesson learned.
