September 16, 2013 in Water Kefir
Note from Shannon: Please welcome Janet, who is bringing us along with her during her real, cultured food tour of France this summer.
Always seeking new flavors for my cultured food habit, the Provencal region in France is full of inspiration. This hot, sun-drenched countryside produces many fruits and vegetables that are delivered daily to the markets that are held several mornings each week. Strolling the aesthetically pleasing displays, I came upon the famous Melon de Cavaillon.
Over five centuries of existence, the melon has garnered many admirers from royalty to writers. These melons are in their prime during July and August and are the primary melons sold in Europe. They are full of sweetness and flavor, and I have never tasted such an amazing melon.
The melon inspired me to flavor my Water Kefir.
