Begin by selecting a good quality Santa Claus melon.  It is always best to get a vine-ripened Santa Claus melon, but they will also ripen on the kitchen countertop.  When the Santa Claus melon is ripe, the melon rind will yield to slight pressure, particularly on the ends.

Thoroughly wash the Santa Claus melon and cut in half lengthwise, exposing the seeds. (Santa Claus melon, split)

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
