Salting melon to increase sweetness

zackly | Jun 26, 2014 01:30 PM

I bought a 3 pack of cantaloupe melons @ Costco recently that were only slightly sweet. I cut them up and lightly salted them and let them sit overnight. By the next morning the salt had drawn out a lot of the moisture and concentrated the flavor, sort of like dry aging beef.. They were quite a bit sweeter. Anyone else do this?
