• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease and flour two 9x5 inch loaf pans.
In a large bowl, beat together eggs, vegetable, sugar, vanilla and cantaloupe. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and ginger. Stir flour mixture into cantaloupe mixture; stir to combine. Pour batter into prepared pans.
Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour 30mins, until a toothpick inserted into center of a loaf comes out clean. Let cool for 1 hour before serving.
