Good for early or late season berries that are not all that sweet.

Glazed strawberries and cantaloupe

1 cup fresh strawberries, hulled, washed, and halved
1/2 of a ripe cantaloupe, seeds scooped out, skin removed

Preheat the broiler, arrange the strawberries cut-side-down in a single layer on a baking sheet and sprinkle with the sugar.  Broil for 4 to five minutes until the sugar melts and starts to bubble. Slice melon into thin wedges and arrange on a plate. Top the melon with the strawberries and serve.
