    1 large ripe cantaloupe, peeled, seeded and cut into cubes, about 4 to 5 cups (1 L to 1.25 L)
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) slivered crystallized ginger
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice
    2 tsp (10 mL) finely grated orange zest
    1 tsp (5 mL) peeled, finely grated fresh ginger

    1/2 tsp (2 mL) cinnamon
    Pinch of salt 
    1/3 cup (80 mL) plain yogurt
