Select Rockyford melons, a very small green, firm nutmeg melon. Cut in halves, remove seeds and put where they will keep cool, tied in paper bag, in the ice chest, as the odor of the melon is quite decided and will cling to other foods.
When ready to serve, fill with crushed ice and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve in the beginning of a dinner, breakfast or luncheon, or fill with plain ice cream and serve as a dessert at the end of a meal.
Other melons may be served the same way, but are not so dainty.
