Mixed melon salad with ginger syrup
Fruit salad made with two types
of melon and drizzled with a sweet and tangy ginger syrup.
1 cup water
1-inch knob of fresh ginger — peeled and crushed with the side
of a large knife blade, keeping it in one piece
3 tablespoons superfine (caster) sugar
1 honeydew melon
PLACE the water, ginger and sugar in
a small saucepan and bring to the boil. BOIL, uncovered, until
the liquid has reduced by about half and turns syrupy. REMOVE
the ginger and let the syrup cool before use. REMOVE the seeds
from the melons and scoop out the flesh with a melon-baller.
MIX together the melon balls with the ginger syrup in a bowl.
