Melon with Fresh Mint & Lime Syrup

Try this sweet-tart syrup with your favorite summer melon.

Ingredients:
1 Canary melon
½ cup sugar
¼ cup thinly sliced mint leaves
Grated zest and juice of 1 lime

Method:
1. Stir the sugar, 2 tablespoons of water, lime zest, and 1½ tablespoons of the lime juice in a small heavy saucepan over high heat until the sugar dissolves and the syrup comes to a boil. Let the syrup cool completely, and then refrigerate it until cold.

2. Strain the chilled syrup into a small bowl and stir in the mint. Allow the mint to infuse into the syrup for at least 5 minutes.

3. Set the melon on a work surface and with a sharp knife trim away the rind and cut the melon into 2-inch chunks. Transfer melon to a large serving platter and pour the cold syrup over the melon, and serve.
