  • Gingered Melon

    Want a very light, refreshing but tasty dish to serve after dinner or for lunch?


    3/4 cup water
    1/2 cup sugar
    4 teaspoons lemon juice
    2 to 3 teaspoons finely chopped fresh ginger
    2 teaspoons finely shredded lemon peel
    4 cups watermelon, cantaloupe, and/or honeydew balls
    1/3 cup flaked coconut

    In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine water, sugar, lemon juice, and ginger. Bring just to boiling; reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in lemon peel. Cool to room temperature. Before using, strain of and discard the ginger and lemon peel.

    Pour syrup over melon balls, stirring gently to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. To serve, spoon melon balls and a little of the syrup into individual dessert dishes. Sprinkle with coconut.

    Makes 6 servings.
